Millie Bobby Brown didn’t actually attend the March for Our Lives yesterday, but she was there in spirit. The “Stranger Things” star, who won the Favorite TV Actress award at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, wore a jacket embroidered with the names of the 17 victims of last month’s school shooting inParkland, Florida while accepting her prize.

“More than anything I get to be up here and I’m privileged to have a voice that can be heard and one that I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change,” she said. “There’s an amazing support, love, and kindness in this room right now and I want to encourage everyone to embrace it and to pass it on. For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you.”

John Cena, who took time off from challenging the Undertaker to a match at WrestleMania to host the ceremony, voiced his support as well. “All over the world, kids made their voices heard with the incredible March for Our Lives and it all happened because you want to make the world a better place,” said Cena. “You see, change is only possible when you all work together and its ‘s inspiring to see kids tale charge. That is the true spirit of Nickelodeon.”
