The Kennedys made a statement on Wednesday by wearing jackets that say ‘I really do care’ following the first lady’s jacket controversy since it had, ‘I really don’t care do u?’ written on it while she was visiting children migrants.
Ethel Kennedy, along with her two granddaughters Michaela and Mariah Cuomo, wore the protest jacket while taking part in the Hyannis Port fourth of July parade in Massachusetts.
Similarly, Rory Kennedy’s daughter also held a sign saying, ‘We really do care’, helping to bring attention to the human rights situation.
Kerry Kennedy posted a photo of these jackets on her Instagram account on Tuesday, which was a part of the family’s promotion of their new initiative, ‘Break Bread Not Families’, which seeks to provide funds for families that have been split apart by the crackdown on illegal immigration.
The initiative, which is being supported by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization, is seeking donations for its cause, which is to fight back against the policy and other executive orders being signed by the president.

‘In response to criticism from across the political spectrum, the administration has moved toward the indefinite detention of families. This ‘solution’ is not only immoral, it is also illegal under U.S. and international law,’ the homepage of the initiative states.
‘Protestors, including elected officials, influencers, and the Kennedy family, will fast for 24 hours, for 24 days, in honor of the 2,400 children separated from their parents,’ the site went on to state.
Amid President Trump’s controversial approach to illegal immigrants at the US-Mexico border, Ethel Kennedy has been outspoken regarding her distaste for his administration. Recently, the 90-year-old announced that she would be fasting to protest the separation of families and push for a change in policy.
