Nerds of Color
hosted “Rally for Rose” at Bayfront Park between Hall H and the Hilton outside of Comic-Con in San Diego, California on Saturday.
The gathering showed some love for Tran, who became the first-ever woman of color to be part of a cast of a mega-franchise such as “Star Wars.”
The rally received positive comments from Twitter
users and fans of Rose Tico, with some showing up in cosplay.
Some couldn’t make it to San Diego Comic-Con, so they showed their support online by posting on Twitter with the hashtag #RallyForRose.
