The star activist celebrated with her husband and Ryan and their babies, writing:“For our babies and for yours! We did it y’all!! Live to fight another day! 4 years ago, @ryanpierswilliams and I sat shell-shocked and terrified for the lives that would be terrorized by 45. We were fortunate enough to get to channel that fear into building community and organizing toward a better day. Today is a better day. And there’s so much work ahead! May we never go back to sleep. Let’s keep organizing and fighting in community for who and what we love. I love you all.”
