If you follow Yara Shahidi on any type of social media, then you must already know that the actress is always speaking out about social justice. The Blackish star is extremely passionate about making the country (and world) a better place, and we're always blown away at the inspiring messages she shares. One of her most recent posts was especially powerful.
"American ⚡️ My dream of dreams, my goal, my motivation, is that the term "American" will one day truly be inclusive of the many people that live in its 50 states. The creation of safe space is essential to allowing all people to embrace who they are without the fear of discrimination or suppression. Our many identities (whether it be ethnic, gender, religious, sexual, etc) should be celebrated and protected," she wrote.
Well said, Yara. We love how she always strives to make her voice heard in the most articulate way.
She continued, "The suppression of any person is the suppression of all people. We all deserve clean water, equal pay, the right to love and legally love who we want, to feel protected by the law, and so much more. To live freely is what was promised and what we work to attain. Through our action, solidarity, and perseverance, we will define American. #NoDAPL #VoteForLove #FlintWaterCrisis #VoteforEquality #genderparity."
