Are you a Republican who just can’t back Donald Trump for president? Are you a #NeverTrump conservative? Then Hillary Clinton wants your story for her campaign.

“We can’t let Donald Trump become president. If you’re a Republican who can’t support Trump, share why,” a notice on her campaign website reads, requesting personal information from anti-Trump Republicans.

By submitting a story, the campaign assumes ownership of the content to use for advertising or campaign purposes.

From the campaign’s legal notice:

I have submitted certain comments, statements, stories, photographs, video, audio and/or other recordings or media (the “Submissions”) to Hillary for America (“HFA”). I grant HFA a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, sublicensable, royalty free license to publish, reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, edit, modify, create derivative works of and otherwise use the Submissions in any manner or media and for any purpose whatsoever at the sole discretion of HFA, including without limitation any political, advertising or commercial use of any kind. I further give my permission to use my name, likeness, voice, and biographical information in connection with such Submissions and release HFA and anyone acting under its authorization from any claims that any use of the Submissions as authorized herein violates any of my rights, including any rights of publicity or privacy. I understand and that all rights granted herein are fully sublicensable and assignable.

Clinton has already referred to stories from Republicans who can’t bear to vote for Donald Trump, suggesting they should join her campaign instead.

“I think that, for a lot of people, again, who take their vote seriously and who really see this as a crossroads kind of election, I’m asking people to come join this campaign,” she mentioned on Sunday’s interview with CBS’s Face the Nation. “And I have had a lot of outreach from Republicans in the last days who say that they’re interested in talking about that.”
