Chances are high that you see versions of the same message on all of your screens today (November 6): “Get out and vote!” And you should; today’s midterm elections include many candidates and measures poised to push back against racist policies across the country.

But don’t take our word for it. Listen to the actors, writers, athletes and other public personalities of color you love as they plead their case:

We know that building walls—whether between nations, between ethnicities or between genders—is an attempt to divide and conquer. We are calling on people to get out the vote on November 6 for candidates who stand against this division. We also call upon people to stand together, publicly and proudly, against hate. As athletes, we will use our platform to defend the most vulnerable in our society. An injury to one is an injury to all.
