NEW YORK (AP) — Celebrities and activists have taken phase in a night of speeches and song in Manhattan billed as “The People’s State of the Union.”
It used to be held at The Town Hall, a ancient venue based as a gathering spot for suffragists greater than 90 years in the past.
Speakers incorporated Mark Ruffalo, Kathy Najimy, John Leguizamo and Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Andra Day and Common sang their Grammy- and Oscar-nominated tune “Stand Up for Something” from the movie “Marshall.”
Hosts of the match incorporated unions, organizers of the Women’s March and Planned Parenthood.
