"We cannot let hate and discrimination determine the outcome of this election," Hayek said. "We owe it to the hard-working Latinos that came before us, to ourselves and to our children, to show the people who unfairly label us as criminals and speak down to us that our community is strong, meaningful and incredibly powerful."

In a campaign email for Hillary Clinton, our October cover star added that Latinos are the "largest, youngest and fastest-growing" community in the U.S. and need a candidate like Clinton, who she says, "respects the contributions we have made."

When the Hillary for President campaign announced last week that many Latino celebs would soon come out in support of the Democratic frontrunner, they weren’t fibbing.

Hayek is joined by Latino megastars like Marc Anthony, America Ferrera and Wilmer Valderrama, who have all championed the two-time presidential hopeful.

Last week, Anthony, who joined the campaign, brought the candidate up on stage during a concert in Miami.

Afterwards, the Puerto Rican singer-actor took to Twitter to share a video of the two onstage. He also tweeted, "This election is important for the future of the Latino community, our vote could make the difference" and "I hope you'll join me in being part of Latinos for Hillary. If you're with us text LATINOS to 47246."

Actor and activist Valderrama posted a photo with him and Clinton on his Instagram back in September. While the Venezuelan funny man hasn't joined "Latinos for Hillary," in his caption, Valderrama introduced fans to Clinton as his "new friend" and noted that he was "Inspired by our conversation."

Ferrera, who like Valderrama hasn't yet officially joined the campaign, did express her support for Clinton. "I believed in her then, I believe in her now," Ferrera, who campaigned for Clinton when she first ran for president in 2008, tweeted with a photo of her speaking at an earlier Hillary for President event.
