Ruth Negga, Karlie Kloss, Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother, Luz Towns-Miranda, were just some of the people who walked the red carpet with a small accessory that speaks volumes: blue ribbons.

The ribbons are symbolic of the American Civil Liberties Union, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to "defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties" of those in the U.S. The ACLU has been outspoken in its resistance of President Donald Trump and his proposed immigration ban.
