Many celebrities offered their support to Hillary Clinton during last year’s presidential election and unfortunately she did not win. Yet, this hasn’t stopped them from being vocal about the current president-elect. The day after Donald Trump gets inaugurated there’s going to be a Women’s March on Washington and America Ferrera will serve as chair of the Artist Table. Other female celebrities will join the march, including Diane Guerrero, Chelsea Handler, Zendaya, Amy Schumer, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson, Cher, Olivia Wilde, and many others.
“Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard,” said Ferrera in a statement. “As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity, and rights of our communities. Immigrant rights, worker rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, racial justice and environmental rights are not special interests, they affect us all and should be every American’s concern.”
“I’m honored to join the Women’s March on Washington Artist Table,” said Chelsea Handler. “By hosting a sister march in Park City, our Women’s March on Main will help send a message to the incoming administration that attacks on Planned Parenthood and our fundamental human rights are unacceptable and if we have to re-fight for rights we have already fought for and won, we will do it louder and stronger, with men by our side.”
