Screen Actors Guild is proud to support the One Nation Working Together March in Washington D.C., and in cities across the country, this Saturday, October 2. For those not able to be in Washington, D.C., rallies are also being held in Los Angeles and other cities across the country.
We represent the most diverse membership of any labor union on earth. We have members who are months-old, others in their nineties and every age in between. We are conservatives, moderates, progressives and liberals, non-believers and people of every faith, members of every ethnic group and national heritage, gender identity, sexual orientation, and physical ability. In short, we are a microcosm of the rich diversity of the United States and the U.S. Labor Movement.
So we are uniting with our brothers and sisters on Saturday to highlight a number of urgent issues that must be achieved in order for everyone in America to have a just and fair chance to achieve the American Dream.
SAG members will march with other workers of the AFL-CIO unions to advance human rights, civil rights, equal protection, and dignity for all; to ensure every worker has a voice at work and a safe work environment, so no worker will have to choose between his livelihood and his life; to ensure women are treated fairly at work and to expand health care coverage for millions of Americans.
Our national identity is rooted in the ideal that all people — regardless of race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or ability — should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential and contribute to an economy that works for everyone.
