Listen up, people!
Kerry Washington may have just given birth to baby number two but that doesn’t mean she’s taking a break from social activism. The actress recently took to Twitter to share an important message with her fans about Deborah Danner, who was recently killed by her police in her apartment.
“The loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core. Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter. But also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love. So when I #sayhername My heart aches. For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm. #BLM”
Wow! We’re so glad that Kerry uses her influence to share such an important message.
Kerry has always been political, from her words on Black Lives Matter to her very public endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
