Oprah Winfrey gave PR advice to anti-gun children Thursday, telling Ellen DeGeneres "They need a name."
Appearing on DeGeneres’ television show, Oprah said she has donated half a million dollars to mobilize kids and send them to Washington, DC, to protest the Second Amendment at the upcoming March for Our Lives protest on March 24.
“We need as many kids to get there,” Ellen told Oprah, praising her and other celebrities funding the transportation, housing and mobilization of child-activists:
“So, everybody that donates anything at all helps more kids get to Washington, because it seems like it’s going to be the kids that make a difference now. It’s finally their time.”
Oprah responded by saying the kids need a “strategy” and a “plan,” including creating a name – for their “mothers”:
“They need a name. Should it be Mothers Against Senseless Killing – that’ll be ‘MASK’ – I don’t if that’s already in existence. But, I was thinking, those kids need to organize, because this is the moment.
“This is exactly what happened with the civil rights movement.”
