She stood together with her mom in the #MeToo and Time’s Up Movement. She has also been outspoken about gun control.

This is no isolated incident. I strongly believe that we need to talk more about how guns and a lack of mental healthcare accessibility factor into these tragedies. I believe is an American responsibility to find a way to protect each other from this type of domestic terrorism and violence. My deepest condolences to those involved in this tragedy and others like it who, yet again, have to process this pain. #prayforlasvegas
