The 36-year-old actress was arrested by cops on April 15 along with many other people for crossing police line to stage a sit-in during the Democracy Spring rally in Washington D.C.
She was fined for USD 50 after briefly detained, reported The Guardian. The group criticised the corruption in the US politics.
They called for the overturn of "Citizens United" law that removes restriction about the campaign spending by outside organisations.
The actress also showed support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the Capitol Hill protest.
"I wanted personally to be in solidarity with the other folks who put themselves on the line and really just to bring attention to this because I think that's just vitally important," she said.
"The police were really great with us, really lovely. I have to say that is not the case for so many people: Dreamers, Black Lives Matter activists, so many people are not seeing this kind of courageousness ... I hope that officers across the nation can take heed of that and recognise that the peaceful protests that are going around the nation should also be treated in the same way as we are being treated today."
