There are still many people that there are still many people that have their hearts filled with love and tenders to snuggle in this path of life.”
For her parting words Sophie told the crowds, “let’s keep together and fight for the rights. God is with us.” She then repeated her speech in Spanish.

America Ferrera, 32, gave a fiery speech in D.C. and told the crowds, “The President is not America; his cabinet is not America; congress is not America, WE are America. And, we are here to stay.” She also spoke about how she feels having immigrant parents in these challenging times. “As a woman and as a proud first-generation American born to Honduran immigrants, it’s been a heartrending to time to be both an immigrant and a woman in this country, our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and the platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday.” Wow, that’s so impactful.
