In the wake of a string of unjust deaths at the hands of police, including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, all 50 states in the US and over 20 other countries have joined in protests against racial inequality and police brutality. Some say the scope of participation makes this one of the largest civil rights movements in the world.

One of the biggest goals shared by protestors is to “defund the police,” which has come with the support of numerous organizations, a huge trending hashtag, and various celebrities’ influence. Many stars have signed a petition started by The Movement for Black Lives, a coalition of black-rights organizations, to advocate for state and local governments to defund the police, and many others have voiced their support online. Click through to see which celebs are onboard, what exactly it means, and how it’s already taking shape.
