Author Stephen Ross in his book Hollywood: Left and Right. "The true question is, do these celebvocates have the ability to in-act more change then the politicians that we voted to office?" For the last four years I have been covering the celebrity political scene here in Washington DC. Polirazzi is a project that I started about three years ago to show the connection that Hollywood has with Washington DC and the advocacy work that many celebrities are doing to change the world around us. Below are a few images from 2013 that will be considered for the final edit of the Polirazzi project.
