The 60th annual Grammy Awards will be held Sunday, January 28, 2018 at Madison Square Garden in New York City -- and chances are, you'll see a ton of attendees wearing white roses.
It's all in support of the Time's Up movement against sexual harassment. This comes after many actors who attended the Golden Globes wore black dresses as a sign of solidarity.
The demonstration put together by group Voices in Entertainment --reps say they "choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.” #TimesUP #GRAMMYs https://t.co/XM7gCTPRNe— Krystin Goodwin (@Krystingoodwin) January 25, 2018

Roc Nation and Interscope executives Meg Harkins and Karen Rait came up with the idea when they realized there was no uniting plan in place like at the Golden Globes. They’ve also coordinated #TimesUp representatives to be sure they stay true to the movement. "We need to say [that] if anyone is feeling like they're being discriminated against and they don't feel safe in their workplace, they have people who will support them,” Harkins told Billboard.
Artists including Kelly Clarkson, Halsey, Dua Lipa & Rita Ora have already confirmed their support.
Nearly all of my harassment experiences (as an adult) took place within the music industry. There was traction on an awareness campaign years ago, and I hope this brings it back to light. #timesup #grammys #wearawhiterose— Ashley Hart (@AshleyM_Hart) January 25, 2018
What do you think about all this?
I’m going to wear a white rose-adorned suit in my living room while I watch the Grammys in support. https://t.co/SgCzzqE8et— Darren (@Darren_Gooden) January 25, 2018
