The incoming Trump administration hasn’t deterred Alicia Keys from her fight for social equality.
In an interview with Allure magazine published on Tuesday, the multi-Grammy winning songstress and dedicated activist said she plans on continuing to use her artistry to advocate for social justice throughout Trump’s presidency.
“As an artist, I expect to continue to use my voice for things that matter, as I have since the beginning of my career,” Keys asserted. “That won’t change.”
Although Keys said she was upset that Trump’s vocalized prejudice didn’t cost him the election, she said she still has faith in our future.
“I have a hope that President Trump, as a New Yorker, will have more liberal views than his campaign rhetoric suggests and that in the end our system of justice will prevail,” Keys said.
For those that feel threatened under Trump’s presidency, Keys said her “We Are Here” organization ― a non-profit she founded in 2014 ― “will stand in support of Hispanics, refugees, people of color, Muslims, and anyone who feels afraid.”
