Join the Guild’s Activist List
The Writers Guild of America, East is an activist organization. We are deeply engaged in work that builds power for creative professionals through our organizing campaigns, legislative actions, and other areas where we can improve our members’ lives.
But we can’t do it alone—just like the collective voices and strength of Guild members enables us to make important achievements in contract negotiations and advocating in the workplace, the Guild can’t succeed in our activism and advocacy unless our members join us in our work.
That is why we encourage our members and allies to sign up for the WGAE’s Activist List.
Recent Activist List Actions
- Twitter solidarity for Guild organizing campaigns with Onion Inc, Vox Media, and more
- Rally in support of DNAInfo / Gothamist workers
- Letter campaigns to support the NY State Diversity Tax Credit
- Marching in the Writers Guild’s contingent at the 2016 and 2017 Women’s Marches
Members of the Activist List receive emails asking them to take part in union actions – ranging from signing petitions to sharing their support for Guild campaigns on social media to attending marches, rallies and events.
Being a part of our activist list gives members and allies the opportunity to join their Guild in efforts to organize more sectors of the entertainment industry, like nonfiction television and online media, and—more broadly—to join us in fighting for a more diverse, inclusive and just industry.
