In response to the first State of the Union address of Donald Trump's presidency, actress/activist Alyssa Milano created a digital counter-programming initiative called "State of the Dream." And in the current political climate, it is exactly what we want (and NEED) to see and hear right now.

According to Deadline, Milano's #StateOfTheDream presented "brief (60 seconds max) videos from Americans describing their dreams for the country. The videos will be posted on Twitter and other social media" at the same time Trump presented his State of the Union.

"#StateOfTheDream will highlight what truly makes America great: that we come from many places, races and creeds, and together work for a more perfect union," Milano said in a proposal statement that was posted on her Twitter account, as reported by Deadline. "Our digital #StateOfTheDream address will support our dreamers and immigrants, call for a DREAM Act, lean into the Senate, fundraiser for United We Dream, and express our vision for a more inclusive, progressive America."

And so many activists from all over the country and the internet took part in the #StateOfTheDream:
