Hayley Brown was born in California, raised in Athens, GA, and returned to sunny SoCal to attend USC, graduating in 2011 with a B.A. in Theatre and a minor in Film. She now works as an actor in L.A.; so she also works a minimum wage food service job and babysits. Hayley recently passed the Groundlings Basic level and is hoping to afford Intermediate very soon. She feels incredibly lucky to have found kindred spirits in the rest of For A Good Time, Vote, and looks forward to continuing to be challenged and inspired by these fine ladies.
We met this summer working for a theatre company in Los Angeles, and very quickly realized our similar passions for art, politics, and inspiring our generation to have faith in our collective power to change our nation for the better.
What the hell are you doing and WHY?
As a group of this generation, we realized that there is a lack of interest in voting. And furthermore, there is a lack of engaging and relatable media that addresses this void. We saw this as an incredible opportunity. We have created videos using humor, satire and yes, sex, with the goal of generating excitement about voting.
For A Good Time, Vote has written eight #IHoldOutForVoters sketches with the lesson that exercising your vote is the most attractive quality a person can have.
Are voters really sexier than non-voters?
Is this a real question?
