Lakshmi and the organization’s goal is to have 100,000 more people sign the pledge.

Model, food expert, and Emmy-nominated host and judge of Bravo’s Top Chef Padma Lakshmi is taking a stand with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as Donald Trump’s 100th day in office approaches. As an immigrant who moved to the States when she was four, she says she feels that her values are under attack.

“For the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency, I’ve been proud to stand with the ACLU — and with you — in opposition to his un-American and unconstitutional policies,” Lakshmi wrote in an ACLU newsletter. “Together, we have created a resistance that has been felt in every corner of the country.”

Through the pledge, Lakshmi and the ACLU plan to “continue to fight for the rights of immigrants, Muslims, women, and everyone else whose freedom is on the line,” according to the organization’s website.

Lakshmi urges others to join her to continue to send a message to the Trump administration that the group’s “resistance is as strong as it has ever been.”
