Kerry Washington has been MIA from Twitter (save for a few reposts about causes close to her heart) since giving birth to her second child, Caleb Kelechi Asomugha. But since the actress is always one to speak out for human rights, she recently had some things to get off her chest:

First, she begins by thanking everyone for their congratulatory tweets:

And then she gets serious:

For those of you who don’t know, sixty-six year old Deborah Danner was shot and killed Tuesday by an NYPD sergeant when officers responded to a call from her Bronx neighbor reporting that she was behaving erratically.

Our heart breaks every time we hear one of these stories.

Kerry then changes course, and gives a shout-out to powerful indie film Moonlight:

She then concludes with:

The movie, Moonlight, a coming-of-age film about LGBT issues, has been universally praised by critics. Rolling Stone wrote: “A masterpiece. We leave the theater as different people than we came in.” That’s high praise indeed!

Kerry, meanwhile, can be seen on Scandal, which returns in January, and will no doubt continue to comment wisely on matters close to her heart.

We love her and are so glad she continues to share such important messages.
