Details: In 2009, SAG’s National EEOC committed to host and develop a series of ethnic-specific membership caucuses designed to generate member interest and feedback from each protected ethnic group. The National EEO Committee has already successfully hosted a caucus for Middle Eastern, Latino/a and Asian Pacific Islander members. The African American Membership Caucus will address the current status of African Americans in Hollywood to determine how did we get here? Are we far enough? The membership caucus provides a special opportunity to hear directly from African American members about their opinions and concerns regarding access and inclusion of African Americans on television and in film.
