They #StoodforSomething Noble

When Common was introduced at the 2018 Academy Awards and Andra Day sang #StandUpForSomething we were told 10 others were joining in, but they NEVER mentioned who these people were. And they were great people.

During #StandUpForSomething on stage with Common and Andra Day were: child activist Bana Alabed, a Syrian refugee; Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards; labor leader Dolores Huerta; transgender rights activist Janet Mock; “Black Lives Matter” co-founder Patrisse Cullors-Brignac; and Nicole Hockley, a Sandy Hook mother and gun control activist, the great Alabama anti-racist fighter Bryan Stevenson and Alice Brown Otter, a Standing Rock youth activist, were also on stage
