The letter, published online and in a full-page ad in The Washington Post Thursday, is signed by dozens of prominent men, including actors Colin Farrell and Don Cheadle; NBA star Steph Curry; former NFL player Victor Cruz; Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and New York City mayoral candidate Andrew YangAndrew YangYang intervenes after man threatened with metal pole on Staten Island Ferry NYC's largest union endorses Maya Wiley in mayoral race Five things to watch in the New York City mayoral race MORE (D).

The letter follows a similar one signed by 50 prominent women in The New York Times last month calling for a “Marshall Plan for Moms.” The signers of the original letter include actresses Charlize Theron, Gabrielle Union, Julianne Moore and Eva Longoria, as well as prominent female business owners, entrepreneurs and activists.
