Schumer can be seen interacting with police in the short Twitter video while holding a poster that reads "We believe Anita Hill".
The protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place on Thursday (October 4) in Washington, DC. But after police blockaded the steps, protesters headed to the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power".
Ratajkowski concluded: 'I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men'.
Amy Schumer talks the talk and walks the walk when it comes to denouncing Brett Kavanaugh - 'cause she just got arrested in D.C. with a bunch of other people protesting the imminent vote on his confirmation. She is also a cousin of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Kavanaugh stood before the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week and denied all the allegations against him shortly after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified she had been sexually assaulted by him when they were students at college.
Earlier in the day, Schumer attended the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, with the likes of Lena Durham and Whoopi Goldberg.
The impassioned fight over Kavanaugh's nomination has led to heightened security at the Capitol, with some senators using police escorts to shield them from protesters. The outlet said that Schumer had pink bracelets and when asked what they were for, she joked, "For drinking".
