In an interview with Essence at the Black Women in Music event in Hollywood

I personally, as a Black Iranian, do not support Trump or the administration partly because his policy changes deeply affect me and my family and some of the people I know around me. I know if I’m affected, there are people who are affected ten times worse than I am. I’ve heard stories of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids happening. It’s just such a scary time especially coming from the dream that was the Obama administration. Because whether you agreed with his polices or not, there was such decorum.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, talking about Donald Trump's muslim ban

Being multicultural is something that I’ve always been proud of, but realizing that the same culture that I’m so proud of is the same culture that was banned by this administration is something that is always to be grappled with.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter

My passion really stemmed from having gone through the 2016 election, where myself and many of my peers were unable to vote. A lot of them went with their parents to the polls, but there was that feeling of being lost. Like, ‘What can we do to contribute to our sociopolitical landscape?’[…] The thing people don’t fully understand about my generation is just how multifaceted we are. Oftentimes, people like to oversimplify what [we] believe in or do, whether that’s, ‘Oh, you’re on your phones all the time,’ or, ‘Oh, you’re very self-centered,’ but what I’ve seen from my peers is that we’re socially engaged and curious about the world.

Honored to be able to rep my generation at the Teen Vogue summit and discuss the importance of civic engagement // investing in our global community// and voting (especially during midterms) with Secretary Clinton. Thank you @elainewelteroth for the ardent support and continuing to provide me and my peers with a beautiful platform to amplify what we care about (also thanks to @lilmanshahidi for letting me borrow your clipboard)

Speaking at TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast in San Francisco

So many people in this world, continuing now, have felt disenfranchised, and the issue that we have occurring over and over again is that when we give them the right to feel as though to come under the compass of what it means to be American or what it means to be a full citizen. What we’re seeing right now with the current administration is slowly realizing, especially my generation, how important policy is. I think more than the cultural change that has to occur, there’s social change that has to occur. Policy has to change, so that we don’t live under the legal barriers that prevent us from being ourselves. That’s what I mean when I say the great regression that occur prompts progress. Being around those people that are so aware at a young age and figuring out what to do with their platform is what inspires me especially given the current administration — it didn’t take much for us to mobilize. Just to have that support network with what’s happening right now, it seems an inevitable thing that’s going to happen in which there will be change. I feel like what we’re witnessing right now is the amalgamation of multiple movements. We are no longer dealing with the separation of civil rights movement, with the woman’s liberation movement, with the LGBTQ movement, with the labor movement — we’re working with the amalgamation of all of it because what we have come to realize is that identity is what we are fighting for.

Trump said he would never infringe on ‘the right to bear arms’… But not willing to provide healthcare for those dealing with gun violence.
