Ross is seen at the July 4th White House Flash Mob on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. “I feel very strongly about the presidency being degraded by Donald Trump. He’s putting not just any political party, affiliation, or any particular group of people at risk, but he is, it’s everyone. All Americans should be concerned about the way things are headed. Just the un-presidential nature of his administration and… I could go on. You can look up what he’s done. Everyone knows. So, yeah, that’s why I’m here. And it’s Independence Day, so I thought it was an appropriate time to be out here.”

Tamara Lee, of NYC, is seen at the Women’s March From #NRA2DOJ rally at the National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax, VA on Friday, July 14, 2017. “I think the important thing is that we have to protect the First Amendment rights to be out here, so when we have a propaganda that labels us as not peaceful. This is a tactic that we’ve seen before and we do the same thing we did then, which is to stand peacefully and say who we are. Right? So we’re doing that. And we would like the NRA, if they are the organization that they say they are, to actually stand up for the rights of lawfully owning gun owners who are black and brown. So this is also about Philando Castile. … And so if we can’t stand and resist this government peacefully then we don’t have first amendment rights. If we don’t have first amendment rights, you don’t have second amendment rights. And if we don’t have fourteenth amendment rights what are we here for? So that’s why I’m here.”

Karen Bralove, of Bethesda, MD, is seen at the Women’s March From #NRA2DOJ rally at the National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax, VA on Friday, July 14, 2017. “It is such a profoundly deep place for me. I am so enraged at the lack of decency. I am so enraged at the man and people in the White House. And now especially we’re here because of lax gun laws. And it is insane and makes no sense. I come with my bull horn because literally can’t help myself. I am just kind of driven to exercising my right to say this is not right. The Brady Bill should have been passed decades ago. Ninety-one people a day are killed with a gun. Dear gun owners we’re not trying to confiscate your guns, even though Donny said that in the campaign. … Sorry, we’re not doing that. We just want to register people. And just wondering why you think you need machine guns, AKs whatever they are, not sure why we need that for hunting and practicing. I am enraged very deep down inside of me.”

Serena Williams is seen at the March for Our Lives Rally on Saturday, March 24, 2018. “I’m here because this has always been something very important to me. My dad is actually from England, and I work in International Affairs and it’s just completely unfathomable to me the way that this country cannot wake up. And to see something that is so… it should be so clear. It should be easier than this. And I’m not optimistic for change at the same time. And I think we have a duty to be here, and to make our voices heard. So that’s why I’m here.”

I don’t want everybody else to go through that. So I’m here to support as much as I can.”

I want to be an educator, and I want to be an influencer and I feel like there’s no way we can change the world unless we all come together and work hard at it. I mean, this is the only way to get things done. And, you know, I feel absolutely honored to be able to take part. And as a young person I feel like it’s so easy to be overlooked but no more.”
