Hollywood A-lister Jennifer Lawrence says she’s taking a sabbatical from acting so she can help “fix our democracy.”

“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight, explaining how she will work with a self-described anti-corruption nonprofit during her break from film. “I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.US… trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
