Nick Cannon

January Jones is encouraging her son to get involved. 

The former Mad Men actress posted a photo of 8½-year-old Xander in the wake of George Floyd’s homicide, wearing a mask that read “BLACK LIVES MATTER” as he participated in a neighborhood protest.

Xander also held up a sign reading, “I CAN’T BREATHE” — a reference to the repeated cries of both Floyd and Eric Garner, who was killed by a police officer’s illegal chokehold in 2014.

Jones wrote, “I promise that I will always continue to talk to my child about inequality,” adding, “And I promise to do all I can to learn more.” 

She revealed that she and her son “have had many more of these necessary hard conversations over the last few days, about why people are so angry and sad.”

She continued, “I wanted to give him an opportunity today to do a small neighborhood protest to support his friends and feel like he’s part of the progress that will hopefully happen.”
