When the students of Miami area’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School take to the streets of Washington, D.C. Sat., March 24, we already know they will have plenty of supporters. The March for Our Lives got sizable donations from the likes of Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney early on in its planning. Now the organizers say they'll have star power by their sides, too, as Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Jennifer Hudson now plan to join the march.
"We're gonna have four major independent women that are standing with us and walking beside us, and those are Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, and Demi Lovato," David Hogg, one of the survivors of the shooting in Parkland, FL, told CNN this week.
"I am completely inspired by the students and communities standing up for the future safety of everyone and to honor those we’ve lost from senseless acts of gun violence. I stand with you and raise my voice with yours. #ENOUGH," Hudson tweeted on Wednesday, when students across the country walked out of school.
Despite a suicide bomber attack on a 2017 Manchester concert, Grande has been pretty quiet on social media in recent months. However, she called last fall’s shooting in Las Vegas an act of terrorism, so it’s pretty clear where she stands.
Last November, Cyrus posted two lengthy statements against gun violence after a man shot and killed 26 people at a church in Sutherland Springs, TX. "Mortified by our country & its shitty system , (sic) lack of control/laws!" Cyrus wrote. "This does NOT HAVE or NEED to happen!"
