Actress and Black’ish star Yara Shahidi has always been outspoken about the importance of representation in media. This time she joins many other celebrities to lend her voice to a massive opposition movement gained at the recently decreed ban of individuals who enter the United States from certain majority muslim countries.

Shahidi, 16, is the daughter of an African-American mother and an Iranian-American father. She also has two younger brothers.

Shahidi took to Instagram to share her thoughts and to express her resistance for both the ban and Trump’s planned border wall.

Sincerely, A proud Black Iranian #NoMuslimBan #NoWall #WeTooAreAmerica (excuse any typos)
