Fedoras For Fairness Campaign

Julianne Moore, Rosie Perez, and More Sport Fedoras For Immigration Fairness


Stars like Julianne Moore, Christy Turlington Burns, and Rosie Perez have joined up for the Fedoras for Fairness campaign, aiming to raise awareness about immigration reform, especially among women. The socially active celebrities are using their own family stories to get the message out. For example, Julianne's mother immigrated to the United States from Scotland in 1950, when she was 10 years old, while Christy shared that her mother was 8 years old when she immigrated to LA from El Salvador. By asking everyday people to take photos of friends and family wearing a fedora with the hashtag #fairdora, the campaign hopes to build momentum as Congress prepares to take up the comprehensive immigration reform.

The campaign, which frames immigration as a women's issue, says it's using the fedora as a metaphor for the many hats that women wear. And it is focusing specifically on the plight of immigrant women. Actress Rosie told us that women who immigrate to America often risk their lives and the lives of their children to come with hopes that life will be better for them than at home. "Even if they are here illegally," Rosie said, "they should be treated with respect." She hopes that Fedoras for Fairness will help bring the promise of "comprehensive immigration reform that specially offers decent human rights protection for women and their families" closer to a reality.
