See the biggest speeches of the night in the videos below.

Chelsea Clinton

Clinton's message to those livestreaming "Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU" on Facebook Friday night was clear: there is no giving up in 2017.

"The right to vote is the bedrock of our democracy," Clinton said, as she was introduced as the "alternate universe current first daughter of the United States."

"It gives us, each and every citizen, a voice in how our government works," she said. "Sadly, this fundamental right is under attack all across the country. Dozens of states have passed laws in recent years making it harder to vote. These laws disproportionately affect minority groups, the poor and the elderly. Millions have been disenfranchised by voter ID laws alone."

Tom Hanks

Hanks, as host for the benefit, kicked off the night with jokes attuned to younger viewers who use internet slang to communicate.

"ICYMI, when our constitutional rights go MIA, the ACLU, aka the USA's BFF, will be there ASAP," Hanks said.

Hanks was instrumental in welcoming other celebrities like actress Zosia Mamet and comedian Tracy Morgan, who shared their personal experiences with discrimination and unequality.

Tina Fey

While co-hosting with Hanks, Fey joked that she's a "stay-at-home actress" while joking that the President was giving up sexual assault for Lent.

"Earlier tonight, in what is surely an April Fools' joke, the president proclaimed that next month will be National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, so now we know what he gave up for Lent," Fey said.

"The president and I have two things in common," she said. "One, neither of us has any business wearing khakis with a shirt tucked in, and two, we're both very upset about the amount of fake news out in the world right now. So, don't let any website tell you that the ACLU stands for Anti Christian Lesbian Underground. It's the American Christian Lesbian Underground."

Cecily Strong

Strong tackled equal pay in her speech and slammed the gender pay gap.

"Women still make just 78 cents for every dollar earned by men," Strong said. "If current trends continue, women will not see equal pay for another 117 years. And by that point, currency will probably be something called Tinder bucks."

Encouraging viewers to give, Strong said, "Men, give all you can. Women -- give 78 percent of that."
