The leading lady also posted photos and videos from the peaceful protest. Reinhart has also been using her platform (comprised of 23.9 million IG followers and 3.1 million Twitter followers) to bring about social change after the death of unarmed black Minneapolis man, George Floyd. 

The TV star went live on Instagram Tuesday night with Kenidra Woods, a black activist, for a nearly forty-minute discussion on racism and what white allies can do to support the Black Lives Matter movement at this time. 

The full video conversation can be found below. 

Reinhart, who graduated from Bay Village High School in 2014, just recently ended her three-year-relationship with 'Riverdale' co-star Cole Sprouse.
