The march, which will take place in Washington, D.C., and other cities nationwide, is being organized by survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month.

“No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence,” the famously apolitical Swift wrote in a caption. “Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship.”

“I’ve made a donation to show my support for the students, for the March For Our Lives campaign, for everyone affected by these tragedies, and to support gun reform,” she added. “I’m so moved by the Parkland High School students, faculty, by all families and friends of victims who have spoken out, trying to prevent this from happening again.”


The post is a rare move for Swift, who typically shies away from commenting on political issues.

The singer joins dozens of other celebrities who have made contributions or vocally supported the march. George and Amal Clooney and Oprah Winfrey made donations of $500,000 within days of the march first being announced last month.
