On June 30, people across America marched to #KeepFamiliesTogether and protest current immigration policies.Stars such as Alicia Keys, John Legend, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Cher joined marchers at events across the country.“We love that the American story is filled with people who come from all over the world to have a better life here. America at its best is big, beautiful and diverse,” said Chrissy Teigen at the Los Angeles march. “Too many people demonize immigrants, like they’re stealing something from the people born here. Immigrants don’t come here to take from us; they add to what makes America special. Making America great doesn’t mean building walls to keep people out. It means continuing to embrace the dreams of immigrants who add to our culture, our economy and our humanity.”Other stars to attend marches included Carole King and Taboo, while Questlove and Selena Gomez took to social media to show their support.More information can be found here.
