Chelsea Clinton Took Her Daughter To Her First Protest, To Support The Muslim Community

Gotta love parenting via peaceful protest — it is, by necessity, the 2017 way. And even our favorite mom/activist/once and forever First Daughter is joining in. Chelsea Clinton was a proud participant in today's #IAmAMuslimToo protest, and she brought her daughter along.
Clinton tweeted that it was the first time 2-year-old Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky had joined a protest. She certainly picked a good one. AM New York reports that about 1,000 people rallied in Times Square today in a show of solidarity with NYC's Muslim community in the aftermath of President Trump's actions against Muslims.

Clinton tweeted that it was the first time 2-year-old Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky had joined a protest. She certainly picked a good one. AM New York reports that about 1,000 people rallied in Times Square today in a show of solidarity with NYC's Muslim community in the aftermath of President Trump's actions against Muslims.
The "Today, I Am A Muslim Too" rally was co-hosted by music mogul Russell Simmons and featured (of course) Mayor Bill DeBlasio. Chelsea and Charlotte marched alongside the likes of Susan Sarandon, Linda Sarsour, and various NYC politicians and religious leaders.
"The message is one of solidarity," said Mayor DeBlasio.
“We must not fear in the face of oppression," said rally speaker Reverend N.J. L'Heureux Jr. of Queens, adding that our country is stronger than President Trump. "We must work together and stand solidly together."
We're glad Clinton and so many other parents are working to teach the next generation just that. Her photo and many other powerful pics from the protest are below.
