Among them was Willow Smith, 17, who shared how important this issue is for her. “I’m here because the world needs to be supported with compassion,” she told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY while at the LA event. “And supported in the pursuit of our safety and the pursuit of our consciousness.”
“It doesn’t matter where you’re from, it’s just so inspiring to be participating in something so powerful,” songstress Rita Ora, 27, told HL EXCLUSIVELY when discussing the enormous events taking place all over the country.

“I’m marching today for my son,” she told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But I’m marching really for all us, everybody’s sons and daughters… so that they can feel a sense of safety. But also a sense that we as a country actually care about each other enough to keep each other safe… I do want to see gun laws change. I want to see sensible gun laws put into place and I would love to sit down with the NRA and let’s hash it out. I wish that we weren’t all so divided on this issue.”
