CELEBRITY March for Our Lives
Celebrities, activists, students, and concerned citizens from around the country took to the streets to protest for gun control. Coming together as a united force for school safety, the March for Our Lives protest sent a statement to lobbyists in Washington, D.C.
To show their support and solidarity, these celebrities were vocal in the protest and on social media:
Kim Kardashian West tweeted, "The younger generation will vote to change these gun laws that so desperately need to be changed. Hearing these stories yesterday & meeting so many families affected by gun violence was heart breaking. I hope when it comes time to vote we all step up & vote to protect our children."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said, "I’ll always stand for open dialogue and action - it’s the only way to ensure bad history doesn’t repeat itself. When it comes to protecting our children, all bets are off and the responsibility lies with us adults and lawmakers to listen and do. Very strong day."
Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo of her family members at the march saying, "Surrounded by heroines! Lucky to be here at this moment in history with the ones I love!"
Amy Schumer made an empowered speech at the march in Los Angeles where she called out lobbyists and praised young activists. Schumer also noted that even if she “sell(s) half as many tickets” to her stand-up shows because she’s “standing up for what’s right,” then that is what she will continue to do.
Other celebrity sightings included Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Will Smith, Julianne Moore, Amy Poehler, Cynthia Nixon, Demi Lovato, Kendall Jenner, and many more.
