Rosario Dawson, Wilmer Valderrama, and "Ugly Betty" star Ana Ortiz came together to film a TV spot for MTV Tr3s and Voto Latino. The three Latin stars are reaching out to fellow Latinos to take the 2010 Census.

With the "Be CountedÂ…Represent" 2010 campaign, the stars are urging the participation of Latinos in the Census in order to receive better representation in congress and have the necessary funds for the community's needs allocated properly. Based on the results of the census, more than $400 billion in funds from the federal government will go to local hospitals, job-training centers, and public work projects.

"By taking part in the Census, you will help secure funding for your community's schools, emergency services, and other important community needs," Dawson says in the first PSA released from the campaign.

The stars also also joining other famous faces like Disney Channel star Demi Lovato and actor Jorge Garcia for other ads which promote the importance of Latino representation in the 2010 Census.

By visiting the campaign's website at www.becountedrepresent.com, filling out a form that pledges to participate in the 2010 Census will get you 25 free songs from artists like Pitbull, Aventura, Mos Def, Morrissey, Jaguares, and Los Tigres Del Norte.

Dawson adds, "Mi gente, we cannot do this without you."
