BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 27: Jaden Smith attends Louis Vuitton Unveils Louis Vuitton X: An Immersive Journey on June 27, 2019 in Beverly Hills, California.

Jaden Smith is following in the footsteps of his mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, with his own show on social media. Jaden will be hosting The Solution Committee on Snapchat, as CNN reports. The original series on the social media platform is being billed as Jaden seeking “out the help of young activists and celebrity friends to explore and understand what we can do to create change around the most important racial and social justice issues of our time.”

Jaden’s new series will explore voting access, education reform, and criminal justice reform, among other things.”Historically people between the ages of 18 to 23 have been less likely to vote. This is because a lot of young people feel like they don’t have the information or know where to get it. This show is about educating the youth and making sure they feel empowered and ready to vote,” Smith said in a statement.

On the show, Jaden will be joined by a slew of his famous friends and family, including Willow Smith, Lena Waithe, Common, Janelle Monáe, Phoebe Robinson, Yara Shahidi, and Hailey Bieber. Pinkett Smith hosts her popular Facebook series Red Table Talk.
