STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF INDUSTRY LEADER JACK VALENTI

Los Angeles (April 27, 2007)—“Screen Actors Guild mourns the loss of industry leader, Jack Valenti. The consummate champion for creative rights, Jack fought on our behalf for decades. Whether the issue was piracy, first amendment rights or FCC fines, Jack Valenti was the voice heard throughout the world, and someone we could always count on to stand with Screen Actors Guild. I am proud to have known him.

Each member of Screen Actors Guild owes a debt of gratitude to Jack Valenti, and we offer our heartfelt sympathy to the Valenti family.”

Alan Rosenberg
President
