Celebrities ranging from Alicia Keys to Michael Moore took the stage at the Women’s March in Washington Saturday, but one of the most stirring speeches came from a 6-year-old.

Sophie Cruz, a pint-sized immigration activist, stood with her family and urged people to continue fighting for the rights of immigrants. 

“We are here together making a chain of love, to protect our families,” she said to the crowd .”Let us fight with love, faith, and courage so that our families will not be destroyed.” 

Despite the current political climate, she urged children not to be afraid and to take strength in the fact “there are still many people that have their hearts filled with love.”

Sophie Cruz also gave her speech in Spanish.

"Pope Francis I want to tell you that my heart is sad. And I would like to ask you to speak with the president and the Congress in legalizing my parents because every day I am scared they will take them away from me," Cruz told CBS News.

On social media, many tweeted photos of Sophie at the Women's March and congratulated her on the speech.

Twitter user @mjtidwell781  said people in the crowd were crying while Sophie gave her speech.

"People in the crowd begin to cry as #sophiecruz speaks in Spanish about welcoming immigrants to America #sisepuede chant begins in reply," @mjtidwell781 tweeted.
