Jane Fonda and rapper-turned-actor Common are set to give speeches at the Respect Rally during the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
The movie veteran and the hitmaker will join activist and lawyer Gloria Allred for the event on January 20, in Park City.
The stars will appear alongside several notable celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson, Alfre Woodard, Olivia Wilde and Adam Scott. Melissa Etheridge and The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles will perform.
The Respect Rally will serve as a stand against inequality with roughly 3,000 to 5,000 people expected to attend. The march will be timed with gatherings in New York, Los Angeles and other cities.
“We take this opportunity to join in solidarity with members of the local community and visitors from the global creative community to demonstrate and voice our respect for all ethnicities, religions, genders, political and sexual orientations, to commune in respect for our land, our water and our air, and to show deference for each person’s individual experience and belief system,” a spokesperson for the event said in a statement.
