Since launching her presidential campaign in April 2015, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has garnered the support of many Latino celebrities ― some of whom have used their public platforms to advocate on Clinton’s behalf, including Eva Longoria.
The activist-actress broke down why she’s with Clinton at the Democratic National Convention Monday evening. “I believe in the candidate who believes in all of us, and that candidate is Hillary Clinton,” she proclaimed to a roaring crowd. “Hillary has spent her whole life fighting for all Americans — from healthcare reform to equal pay for women to gun safety to protecting the economy. She is the most qualified presidential candidate ever. She’s been fighting for us for decades and now it’s time we fight for her.”
Longoria isn’t alone, from America Ferrera to Ricky Martin, more and more Latino celebrities are showing their support for Clinton.
Here are 11 singers, actors and activists of Latino descent who have publicly disclosed their reasons for joining #TeamHillary.
