Dear Member,

 

We are continuing our fight to protect SAG-AFTRA members from age discrimination in casting.

 

Combating discrimination and harassment is at the core of what our union stands for.

On Saturday, Feb. 24, across the country, join thousands of working people and our allies and stand up for our freedom to come together in strong unions and fight. Fight for equitable pay. Fight for affordable health care, quality schools, vibrant communities and a secure future for all of us. Demand an end to a system that’s rigged against working people. Additionally, a rally will take place in Los Angeles on Monday, Feb. 26.

In a two-page advertisement that will appear in Wednesday's Politico, the artists state:
