Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys among celebs in Let Girls Learn PSA

Over two dozen celebrities are starring together in a new PSA campaign from the Let Girls Learn initiative.

Alicia Keys, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Denise Richards, Kelly Osbourne, Nick Cannon and Susan Sarandon are some of the recognizable faces appearing in the new video, which was released online Thursday by a division of the U.S. government.

Let Girls Learn is run by USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and aims to help strengthen educational opportunities for female students around the world.

"A threat to girls' education anywhere is a threat to progress everywhere," Julie Bowen of "Modern Family" fame says in the clip.

"It's time to unlock their potential," Hathaway adds. The clip was produced by UCLA's Burkle Center and Prime Content productions in partnership with The Jim Henson Company.

Some of the other celebs appearing in the video include Amy Brenneman, Chris Colfer, Joe Mangianello, Diego Boneta, DeAndre Jordan, Julie Delpy, Lance Bass, Moby, Nikki Reed, Paul Wesley, Rita Wilson, Shonda Rhimes and Soledad O'Brien, who can all be seen in the below clip.
