Rosario Dawson may have two new movies set for release this fall, but for now she's taking a break from acting to focus on politics.
The New York native, accompanied by boyfriend Mathieu Schreyer, went to Washington, D.C.'s Capitol Hill Tuesday to help promote voter participation.
"I decided I'm not going to be working at all through the fall," the actress – who'll be seen in Eagle Eye with Shia LaBoeuf and Seven Pounds with Will Smith – told PEOPLE.
Instead, she plans to work at voter drives across the country sponsored by her non-profit Voto Latino.

Jessica Alba's newest role is that of a mother, but she'll also be something more for her new daughter, a former costar says.
"She'll be really attentive and really strong and she'll be a great role model," actress Rosario Dawson told PEOPLE at the Cinevegas Honorees Reception in Las Vegas on Friday. "She's very smart and I like that about her."
Dawson, who starred in Sin City with Alba and was being honored at the movie festival with the "Half Life" award, said she has already congratulated the new mother, and called Honor Marie Warren "a beautiful little girl."
"I don't know what people think about her on the outside or what their impression is, but Jessica is very strong and a very powerful woman," says Dawson.
