Fortnite Is Hosting Another We The People Panel About Voter Suppression
Set in Fortnite's Party Royale mode, the panel is the second in what is set to be an ongoing series of discussions about race.
Since its introduction in May, Fortnite's Party Royale mode has hosted concerts, movie nights, and even a panel on racial injustice. Now, more of the latter is coming, with an announcement that the second installation of We The People x More Than A Vote will be coming to Fortnite on July 28.
The first We The People event took place on Saturday July 4, and the new event looks to continue that conversation. Hosted by Cari Champion, the second event will feature athlete Jason Heyward, rapper and activist Bun B, athlete and sports host Jalen Rose, actress and comedian Yvonne Orji, and rapper Russ as they discuss the voter suppression crisis that disproportionately affects Black communities.
Attendees at the We The People event will receive the Verve emote for free for their participation--though all emotes will be disabled for the duration of the event to help foster an atmosphere of respect for all players.
We The People will be available in Party Royale mode from 7 PM EDT on Tuesday July 28, though players should load into the game ahead of the start time. The first We The People event also screened repeats for the 24 hours following the premiere, though Epic hasn't said whether the new panel will follow the same schedule.
