Selena Gomez is using her star status to make a statement. Just days ago she stepped out wearing a gold "We The People" choker necklace, and the internet went gaga.

The "We The People" necklace is a collaboration between Slow Factory and the ACLU. CĂ©line Semaan, founder of Slow Factory, originally created the necklace when her immigration lawyer told her not to travel following President Trump's ban.

PopSugarTeen VogueRefinery 29, even Business Insider picked up on Gomez's new accessory, spreading the word to fashionistas, activists and professionals alike. The flash press quickly drove sales. As Semaan told Glamour, ""It was crazy—we got lots of orders [after Gomez wore the necklace], which means lots of donations to the ACLU." While exact numbers aren't public, it's obvious that Gomez's one-time wear has generated a well deserved windfall for the ACLU.

The ACLU x Slow Factory collab also features a gorgeous flight jacket with the first amendment written in English and Arabic, and a banned countries scarf highlighting the countries banned by the current administration (which are also hardest hit by the Refugee Crisis).

Slow Factory is a fashion activism brand based in Brookly, NY. Everything at Slow Factory is eco-friendly and fair trade. In addition to ACLU x Slow Factory, their collections include pieces for NASA, WWF, and a RESIST set including a red" NO" baseball cap that's fabulous.

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) works to "defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States."

The "We The People" necklace from Slow Factory x ACLU is $75. 10% of the proceeds go to the ACLU. Of course, you can also donate directly to the ACLU here.
