Union Goes to D.C. to Support Veterans

The SAG-AFTRA Military Personnel & Families Support Committee was a proud sponsor of this year’s GI Film Festival in Washington, D.C. The festival mission is to tell the stories of America’s veterans and encourage the accurate portrayal of service members in TV and film. 

Members of the committee, including New York Local Board member Marc Baron, Seattle Local President Rik Deskin, member Gene DeFrancis and National Board member Susan Snyder, visited the nation’s capital May 24–28 to attend the festival and also made time to visit legislators on Capitol Hill to discuss veterans issues.
