Ben Affleck and girlfriend Ana de Armas joined protestors in Venice, California on Tuesday.
The two stars were spotted at a rally denouncing the demolition of a historic black church in the area. Ben was photographed holding up two signs — one of which read, “Save First Baptist Church of Venice,” while a smaller one read, “Black Lives Matter.”
Ana stood beside Ben in a mask as she clapped.
A friend of Affleck’s tells People magazine, “Ben wants to continue to be a model for his children. They talk about these important issues.”
According to L.A. Curbed, the church has been sold to a private holding company with plans to turn it into town homes.
March for #GeorgeFloyd in #Venice today. Blessed to have @BenAffleck express awareness and concern for the local Historic Black Community in #VeniceBeach that has been long ignored and obstructed by local politicians, LAPD, and commerce bullies. #SaveVenice #DefendOakwood
