In Music Videos, Black Eyed Peas Group Tackles School Gun Violence, Immigration
The Black Eyed Peas band takes on gun violence at schools and immigration in two new music videos for their song, "Big Love."
The group also announced that proceeds from the song will benefit the student-led March for Our Lives organization, calling for stricter gun laws in the wake of the deadly shootings in Parkland, Fla., in February, and Families Belong Together, a protest against the Trump administration policy of separating children from families after they are detained crossing the U.S. border illegally.
In the video confronting gun violence at schools, band members are shot by a gunman along with several students, while others run for safety. Another band member plays a police officer in the clip.
The second video focuses on U.S. Border Patrol officers blocking immigrants.
