Models Gigi and Bella Hadid spent their Sunday protesting President Donald Trump’s executive order that bans people from seven countries with a majority Muslim population from entering the United States for 90 days, and a suspension of the U.S. refugee program for 120 days. Protesters were also speaking out against Trump’s promise to begin building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The sisters were spotted among fellow #NoBanNoWall protesters gathered in New York’s Battery Park, chanting “No hate, no fear, refugees are welcome here.” While they have not commented publicly yet about the ban or about their participation in the march, Bella did post a photo from the protest on Instagram.
Gigi and Bella could be particularly motivated by the fact that their father, Mohamed Hadid, was born in Palestine and briefly lived in Syria before his family moved to the U.S. While he is apparently not a practicing Muslim, the issue is still one that could hit close to home for the family.
As for footwear, the sisters wore comfortable pairs for all of the walking involved. Gigi wore black leather boots, and Bella wore a pair of black and white sneakers.
