Gizelle Bryant: "You Stand Up for What You Believe In, You Fight, You March, You Protest"

Gizelle Bryant appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen with an important call to action for everyone who really wants to make a change for a better future.

The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member has long been an activist, even stepping out with her daughters to protest in support of Black Lives Matter, and now she wants you to know a great way to make your voice heard is at the polls.

She spoke passionately about how important voting is during the Moment of Mazel on Thursday's (June 10) episode of WWHL.

"Black voices right now need to be amplified. So what I'm doing right now, and what I encourage you to do, is first of all, talk to your children. They want to know that their voices are heard and that their voices matter. So talk to your kids," she said.

She added, "Also, I want to make sure that you're getting out to vote. We cannot take voting for granted. That is the way that legislation is going to be changed in order for this country to be better [and] in order for us all to have equality and to have change. So, amplify your voice. Please." 

Using politics to effect change has been the message for another Real Housewife. The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss said Black youth going into politics is a way to change the world we live in.

"The future is representation in every business that we're a part of and everything that we're doing, especially in politics," she said on WWHL on June 10. "So what I am encouraging every parent, especially minorities: Encourage to get more involved in knowing about politics so that we can start attacking it at a local level. I think it all starts there and then goes forward. We need to start grooming our children the same way that white men are groomed to be in politics."

Both Gizelle and Kandi, along with Porsha Williams, also appeared on an Instagram Live panel, Amplify Our Voices: An Open Dialogue on Being Black in America in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on June 8. You can check out their appearance above.
