We're proud of Hayden Panettiere.
The young actress is continuing to fight for a cause in which she believes strongly. Over the weekend, the Heroes star led the rally against the resumption of commercial whaling in Washington, D.C.'s Dupont Circle Sunday.
The 18-year-old was greeted with applause as she gave her speech in front of supporters that included her mother/manager, Lesley Panettiere.
Boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia was not on hand, but we are pretty sure he would be quite proud of his girl. We know we are.
