The 23-year-old asked her followers if they have, 'Any requests? Who should I reach out to?'

In a follow-up tweet, Lili added, 'Maybe “activist” is a better word. Send me accounts to reach out to.'

Lili supports Black Lives Matter

The Betty Cooper actress has been extremely supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Earlier this week, she tweeted, 'I want to say that I am ashamed of the racism that exists in this country.'

'We are taught to look at our police officers as helpful and friendly when we learn about “leaders” in elementary school.'

Lili added, 'Our “leaders” have failed us today.'

The actress went on, 'I can’t begin to imagine the horror of worrying that you won’t be protected by your “leaders” because of the color of your skin.'

'I know that white privilege exists and I could never fully understand what it’s like to be oppressed because of my race.'

Lili finished, 'I don’t have all the right words, but I stand by you. #BlackLivesMatter.'

Meanwhile, Lili's been incredibly supportive of her co-star Vanessa Morgan who has spoken out about being, 'used as a sidekick,' to Riverdale's white leads.

Vanessa plays Cheryl Blossom's girlfriend Toni Topaz in the hit CW show.
