Rosie Perez

The Do the Right Thing actress and current co-host of The View has lent her distinctive voice to a number of causes, from protesting Time Warner Cable's decision to stop carrying the arts network Ovation (Perez and others claimed the move discriminated against minorities who sought access to the arts but couldn't afford high-priced tickets to NYC events) to the US bombing range in her native Puerto Rico. Perez was even arrested at a protest for the latter.
