Rosario Dawson, Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon and Danny Glover attend a press conference in support of Ohio Rep. Nina Turner at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Nina Turner is a former state senator for Ohio’s 25th district and served as the minority whip in the Ohio Senate. A Democrat, she has endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for Democratic nomination. She is also a CNN political contributor.
Turner has made the headlines this week because she was slated to give a speech nominating Bernie Sanders for President Monday night at the Democratic National Convention. The speech was meant to show respect to the Vermont Senator even though Clinton had already secured enough delegates. However, upon arrival to the Wells Fargo Center, she said she was banned from going backstage.
And, that is why these Hollywood celebrities turned out in Philadelphia. They joined the #ImwithNina protest to help bring attention to the wrong-doing of the outspoken Sanders supporter. The celebrities stated that it was unfair to silence a major voice in the Democratic party and that many Bernie supporters are upset. And it worked, media outlets across the nation picked up the story.
“There are a lot of people that are discouraged,” she said walking through the DNC media tent. “I want to keep the supporters knowing that the future’s still bright and that there’s still complicit energy towards making this work.”
“Yesterday, the senator wanted me to be able to put him into nomination and that did not happen,” Turner said.
“We’re gonna keep moving,” she said. “I don’t want people to worry about what happened yesterday.”
And….in case you were wondering, the actors did take time out of their busy schedules to help fuel the protest. Susan is currently filming two movies: The Death and Life of John F. Donovan & Spark. Danny Glover has been taking on many small roles and currently has over 10 films in post or pre-production. Rosario just finished The Lego Batman Movie and is filming Unforgettable. Lastly, Shailene is riding her Divergent coat-tails and getting ready to film The Divergent Series: Ascendant, a TV Movie.
