Dancing With the Stars champion Nyle DiMarco is asking you to help give those with disabilities a voice in this year’s election.

The 27-year-old model, who is Deaf, appears in a new silent campaign advertisment for Hillary Clinton where he makes the case for, in sign language, the presidential candidate’s commitment to helping millions of Americans with disabilties. DiMarco begins the ad, which was released on Facebook Monday morning, by explaining that there isn’t any sound and that viewers should feel free to scroll past it because “we’re used being ignored.”

“But if you’re still listening to my voice, please know that there are a lot of people out there without one,” says DiMarco. “Among the 50 million Americans living with disabilities many don’t have the ability to work, to travel, or to do countless other things you might take for granted,” says DiMarco.

In 2016, DiMarco became the first Deaf contestant to win Dancing With the Stars. Following his victory, he joined the Chippendales as a celebrity guest host in September.
