It looks like Hillary Clinton won't be the only big name campaigning against the Republican Party's Presidential Nominee, Donald Trump.

Different circumstances tend to bring the community together, and now over 100 celebrities are coming together for one cause: to unite against Donald Trump.

Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston, Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo and Kerry Washington are just a handful of celebs who are pledging their support of the group called "United Against Hate." According to an open letter on Mic, the group plans to use the combined power of their voices and their votes "to defeat Donald Trump and the hateful ideology he represents."

United Against Hate is committed to call out the Republican nominee for his hateful language towards women, Latinos, people with disabilities, and other marginalized groups.

"When dangerous and divisive leaders have come to power in the past it has been in part because those of goodwill failed to speak out for themselves or their fellow citizens. Some of us come from the groups Trump has attacked. Some of us don't. But as history has shown, it's often only a matter of time before the 'other' becomes me."

Other celebrities have also spoken at the Democratic National Convention in hopes to grow the numbers in opposition to his presidency. Elizabeth Banks, who spoke at the convention, also gathered a group of celebrities to show their support for Democratic Party Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton.

Big name celebrities are not the only ones involved with this movement. Former ghostwriter for the controversial nominee, Tony Schwartz, and YouTube celebrity Laci Green also joined the campaign against Trump.

"American progressives must step up right now," said Green. "Defeating Trump is not a matter of getting the word out that he's basically Voldemort. To defeat Trump, we need to get people, and especially young progressives, to actually vote in spite of frustrations with Clinton."
