The video features: Ashley Bachner, Andrew Boyle, Linda Bowen, Mark Burrell, Tina Cannon, LaMae Caparas, Laura Haney, Aaron Felske, Juliet Fischer, Peter King-Yuen, Jessica Lea Patty, Deb Leamy, Marla McReynolds, Andrea Mislan, Kathryn Mowat Murphy, Noa Neve, Josef Pescetto, Mark C. Reis, Deon Ridley, Leslie Stevens, Estelle Tomasovic Shaw, Chryssie Whitehead, and Courtney Young.
