Thursday afternoon, protestors marched toward Union Square in New York City, and a famous face was among them. Holding up a sign showing support for students, Anne Hathaway stood among the crowds in a dark hoodie and sunglasses.

At least 175 people were arrested for blocking streets near the New York Stock Exchange.

Hathaway has long been an advocate for education, and urges young people to "make their voices heard" through The Creative Coalition, a social and political advocacy organization aimed at educating arts community leaders on arts advocacy and public education.

Twitter user @Elana_Brooklyn tweeted this picture of Hathaway at the protest.

According to the tweet, Hathaway's sign read "Blackboards Not Bullets."
