Orange Is the New Black Cast Spotted at #MillionMarchNYC Protest


Thousands of protesters hit the streets in New York City on Saturday to protest police violence after the grand jury decisions in Ferguson and Staten Island in what came to be known as the #MillionMarchNYC demonstration. Among them were several members of the cast of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.

Vicky Jeudy, who plays Janae Watson, posted this dramatic photo of the group holding “I Can’t Breathe” signs and doing the “Hands up, Don’t Shoot” gesture.

Other members of the cast posted images on Instagram, promoting the march and sharing moments from their experience there:

I'll be there. Will you? #blacklivesmatter
