Brown, who won the Favorite TV Actress award at the Kids' Choice Awards for Stranger Things, added the hashtags #MarchForOurLives and #NeverAgain.
"Thank you so much for this award, and to Nickelodeon for bringing us all together," Brown said when she accepted her award. "As we saw a moment ago, the March for Our Lives demonstrations that took place all over the world today have inspired me and impacted us all in one way or another."
She continued, "But more than anything, I get to be up here, and I'm privileged to have a voice that can be heard, one that I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change. OK, so there's an amazing support, love and kindness in this room right now, and I want to encourage everyone to embrace it and to pass it on. For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you."
Brown was just one of the many celebrities who showed support for the March for Our Lives protest. Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Demi Lovato and Common performed in Washington, D.C., where many of the survivors of the Parkland shooting spoke. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, George and Amal Clooney, Jimmy Fallon, Noah Cyrus, Steven Spielberg, Dennis Rodman and Ariana Grande were also in Washington, D.C. Paul McCartney attended a march in New York City, where he paid tribute to the late John Lennon.
During her speech, survivor Emma Gonzalez stood silent for six minutes and 20 seconds, the amount of time it took for the 19-year-old gunman to shoot and kill 17 people. She also read the names of the victims.0comments
"Since the time that I came out here, it has been six minutes and 20 seconds," Gonzalez said. "The shooter has ceased shooting, and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape, and walk free for an hour before arrest. Fight for your lives before it's someone else's job."
