The pair were in town to encourage the officials "to modernize and strengthen the #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct to include protections for children’s health and safety, communities of color, tribes, LGBTQ survivors, rural areas, and all survivors," she wrote on Instagram.

"We need reforms including judicial training, trauma-informed court processes that minimize the risk of harm to children, grant programs for technology to detect bruising across all skin tones and create non-biased forensic evidence collection, and protections for the most vulnerable," the Eternals actress continued.

She also provided a link so fans can "learn more about VAWA reauthorization."

"Every day I feel like I'm more aware of everything I don't do right," she confessed to PEOPLE. "And I'm pretty tough on myself, because I feel often, 'Am I doing the right thing? Did I say the right thing?'"

Reagrdless, the Oscar winner noted that her children turned out to be "pretty great people."

"I have six very individual human beings in my home. I am so excited about all the different stages and feelings and curiosities that they go through. Why wouldn't you be?" the Salt star shared. "We're supposed to help them figure out who they are. And you can't figure out who they are if you don't enthusiastically develop with them."
