Miley Cyrus has stopped crying and started rallying people to take action in their communities.
“No more crying coming from me,” the singer said in a new Instagram video. “I am accepting and hopeful, inspired and smiling. As a reaction to this shocking election, Happy Hippie and I are launching our newest campaign, #HopefulHippies.”
The new initiative will encourage people to agitate for change at the local level. “I’m asking you to get involved in your own community and make a commitment to the issues you care about, whether it’s donating, volunteering, or showing your support,” Cyrus wrote in the video’s caption.
“I’d like to start with the first pledge and say myself and Happy Hippie are putting education for young people at the very top of our list of priorities in honor, of course, of Hillary Clinton,” she said. In the caption, she clarified that she’d be partnering with DonorsChoose to support American schools.
“If you need ideas to get you started, check out HappyHippies.org to find local opportunities near you supporting the issues we care about,” Cyrus wrote.
Miley Cyrus treated teens from My Friend’s Place — a Los Angeles-area center that assists homeless youth — to a special day on The Voice set.
The excited group sported Happy Hippie T-shirts as they toured the backstage, took turns sitting in the famous red judge’s seats and watched a taping of the show. They also got a chance to sit down with the Season 11 coach to discuss the importance of music in their lives and the issues that they face as homeless teens.
“On The Voice I’ve heard so many people’s stories now,” says Cyrus in a clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE. “To be able to have the spotlight on people that don’t usually have the spotlight on them is why I’m here and why it’s really important for y’all to be here and to just see who’s on that stage.”
