Alicia Keys is urging fans to “Vote Love” in a powerful new video endorsing Hillary Clinton.
In the video, produced in partnership with MoveOn.org Political Action, Keys discusses the importance of voting for Clinton and how it can help us “wake up in a more perfect union” as it relates to trans equality, gender equality, sexual equality, and racial equality.
“I’m fighting for a woman who was never meant to have a seat at the table,” she says. “A woman who never quit–who never got too jaded for hope. She endures because she has faith in our kindness.”
Keys is one of more than 100 high-profile celebrities who have joined MoveOn.org’s #UnitedAgainstHate campaign to ensure Americans vote against Donald Trump in the upcoming election.
In a statement explaining why the organization has taken a stand against the Republican nominee, Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, pointed out that the Trump campaign “represents a clear and present danger to the very fabric of our nation.”

“Trump has led a campaign fueled by racist, bigoted, xenophobic, misogynistic, and violent rhetoric intent on dividing us,” she said.
“That’s why we are so proud to team up with Alicia Keys, an artist who reaches millions, to make sure people get out and vote for a more perfect union this November by rejecting Donald Trump’s politics of hate and working to make Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.”
