Chloe Grace Moretz Stumps For Hillary Clinton
Moretz headed to UNLV to encourage the college students to caucus for Clinton on Saturday. During a brief speech on the campus, Moretz tried to impart upon the students the importance of taking action in the election.
“I think we can all sit back and say, ‘Yeah, you know it’s time for Hillary to be president, it’s going to happen no matter what,’” she said. “But it doesn’t work that way. We have to go out there, we have to use our voice and our vote.”
During the event, Moretz was also candid about her own confusion regarding the percentage of young voters – particularly young female voters – that seemed to be flocking towards Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying she had “no understanding.”
“I think that there’s a lot of young women who are terrified of being feminists,” she said, echoing a sentiment felt by Clinton supporters on the UNLV campus. “Young women are afraid to stand up for who [they] are because we still live in a world in which it’s not ok for us to be young, powerful, strong, well-spoken, educated young women. And that’s why we need Hillary in office.”
On Instagram, Moretz shared snaps of her day campaigning for the Democratic presidential hopeful.
“So proud to be in Nevada, raising awareness speaking to other young adults my age!!” she captioned a picture of herself surrounded by students. “Love discussing our opinions and understanding why we are all With Her @hillaryclinton #hillaryclinton Let’s all caucus together on Saturday !!!”
“Vegas! I’m here making calls to get people to caucus for @HillaryClinton,” the Fifth Wave actress captioned another picture. “Wanna join me? https://hrc.io/1QobYAt #ImWithHer #ItsGoTimeNevada #ReadyToCaucus.”
Moretz first shared her support for Clinton a few months ago, posting a picture of herself with the former Secretary of State and her mother.
“Incredibly special day when My mom and I got to talk with @hillaryclinton, she spent time to discuss with us the important issues that face the Youth of America and how she is going to create change for the betterment of our futures :)!” she wrote. “Such a personable and real woman! She’s a huge influence on me and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!”
