Welcome to the Philadelphia Local – birthplace of the U.S. where the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were signed. Our local proudly services members residing in Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and Southern New Jersey. Come see what you can do to strengthen your union and make it work for you. Together and in solidarity we can show the nation why we are City of Brotherly Love.

We are proud to represent broadcasters, actors, singers, musicians and dancers in the Philadelphia area including Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, the Jersey Shore and Delaware. We are extremely proud of our diversity in talent and locations. We're home to a distinct and varied city with suburban neighborhoods and some of our country's most iconic sites and treasures, including the Liberty Bell, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Fairmount Park and Valley Forge National Historic Park. We're also home to literally miles of scenic open space and river fronts, not to mention the Atlantic Ocean. All this has attracted numerous film, TV and live and recorded musical projects here for many years.

Besides helping to bring entertainment related work to our area, your SAG-AFTRA Philadelphia Local is proud to provide many services to its members, such as professional advice, conservatory workshops and financial planning seminars. If you haven't heard, we recently opened a self-recording studio which is available exclusively to members – so check further on this website or call the office.

Welcome to Philadelphia! Your SAG-AFTRA local is here to serve you, so please check us out!
