Shailene Woodley spoke up loud and proud at the We Stand United Rally outside Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York City last night (January 19).
The Big Little Lies star joined Alec Baldwin, Mark Ruffalo, Cher and more at the rally, which brought together citizens from across the country who will work in solidarity with people fighting to advance the causes of racial, social, environmental and economic justice.
During her speech, Shailene referenced her time and efforts in Standing Rock: “What they were able to accomplish is what we need to learn from.”
“The narrative surrounding ‘us against them’ does not ever work. Violence does not work. Aggression does not work,” she added about peaceful protests. “They did it in North Dakota when no one was watching … We can do it across the country.”
