Meanwhile, comic and actress Amy Schumer and Scandal's Kerry Washington were among the stars showing up in New York City.

In Los Angeles, singer John Legend -- who attended the rally with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their newborn son, Miles -- performed a new song, called "Preach."

Laura Dern, who stars in Big Little Lies, also attended the Los Angeles rally, along with her "HBO family," as did Overboard’s Eugenio Derbez and Jane the Virgin’s Jaime Camil.
