“We are America,” actor America Ferrera told a crowd of thousands at Washington, D.C.’s Women’s March.
The message, a rebuke of the idea that any one politician can truly represent the great diversity that makes the U.S. the country it is today, came just one day after President Donald Trump was sworn into office.
“It’s been a heart-wrenching time to be a woman and an immigrant in this country ― a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday,” Ferrera told the marchers. “But the president is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America.”
