Celebrities have been making subtle (and not-so-subtle) references to the current political climate during their speeches at the SAG Awards, but Sarah Paulson, who took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series, used her speech to make a direct plea to her fellow Americans.

Specifically, Paulson urged viewers to donate to a very important organization: the ACLU.

"I would like to make a plea for everyone if they can: Any money they have to spare, please donate to the ACLU, to protect the rights and liberties of people across this country," she implored. "It's a vital, vital organization that relies entirely on our support. So please if you can, thank you very much."
