Using her platform to take a stand, Olivia Wilde shared a post with her 2.2 million Instagram followers yesterday referencing the ACLU, a nonprofit focused on protecting the civil liberties of those in America. The post was a red, white, and blue portrait of Wilde, created by the artist Shepard Fairey years early, featuring the actress wrapped in an American flag, clutching a clipboard and holding a megaphone high in the air.

The issue hit particularly close to home for Wilde, who notes she is a member of the ACLU, as her sister worked with the organization for many years.

Wilde stated, “Back in the day, @obeygiant and I collaborated on this poster for the @aclu_nationwide. My sister was a lawyer for them for several years, and I saw firsthand how hard they work to protect the vulnerable and voiceless. I’m so proud to be a card carrying member, and I encourage you to do the same. #aclu”

According to The New York Times, the ACLU has raised over $24 Million in donations since the first day of the immigration ban.

A few days prior, Wilde posted a cover image of the February 6, 2017 issue of The New Yorker, featuring Rosie the Riveter inspired imagery, updated with a pink hat referencing the Women’s Marches on January 21, 2017.

Train ride back to NYC, still so high on the pussy power. This is just the beginning. #staynasty
