Actor Tony Goldwyn Says Clinton Ready to Tackle 'Hard Truths' of Social Injustice

Actor Tony Goldwyn, known for playing the President on ABC's 'Scandal,' appeared at the Democratic National Convention to introduce 'Mothers of the Movement.' In his brief introduction, he promised that Clinton is prepared to tackle the ‘hard truths’ about social justice in America.

The MMO is a social activism group that says on its website, “Our intention is to promote economic and social justice for mothers and others who do the caring work of our society.” Among the group that spoke at the DNC were mothers of people who died in recent high-profile killings that sparked outrage: Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Lesley McSpadden, Eric Garner and Sandra Bland.

Goldwyn has long been a political activist and mentioned his work with 'The Innocence Project,' an organization that seeks to reform the criminal justice system and exonerate wrongly convicted prisoners. Before bringing the MMO ladies on stage, Goldwyn said of Clinton, “You know, Hillary says we can’t hide from these hard truths about race and justice in America. We have to name them and own them — and then change them. That’s what she’ll do as president.”

The MMO went on to also explain their reasons for backing Clinton.
