Stand with Debra Messing

Debra Messing brought down the house when she was honored at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday night. In her speech, she appealed to Ivanka Trump directly and said, “It’s time to do something. You can change the lives of millions of women and children just by telling your dad stories about real people who are suffering.” We were thrilled to see Debra’s important speech go viral, but this did not make the alt-right trolls of the Internet happy. They immediately started to dogpile on Debra, using vulgar language and threats, simply for standing up for acceptance and unity. Please Stand With Debra to make our voices louder than those spreading hate.
