Senator Elizabeth Warren’s campaign released a list of over 100 leaders in the Latino community who are endorsing her for President of the United States. This comes after Former Housing and Development Secretary Julián Castro shared his endorsement on January 7 and joined Warren on the campaign trail after he dropped out. It’s also three weeks before the first primary caucus in Iowa.

“I am grateful for the support of this list of Latina, Latino and Latinx leaders who have made incomparable gains for their communities and continue to trailblaze for the good of everyone,” Warren said in a press release.

The list includes activists, lawmakers, educators, media personalities, elected officials and others from various states—though it appears no one on the list is based in Puerto Rico, where primaries will take place on March 29.

Here’s what some had to say about why they’re endorsing Warren:

Others also took to social media to express excitement when the list was released by NBC News earlier on Thursday. Some are using the hashtag #JuntosConWarren:
