The solidarity, energy, and inexhaustible ingenuity WGA members have exhibited throughout the agency campaign has been inspiring.
Here are a few examples.
This page will be updated as we continue to work for a future where agency interests are aligned with writers. Please include #WGASolidarity in your social media posts to be included.
The Right thing is rarely the Easy Thing. The @WGAWest and @WGAEast are doing something incredibly difficult, to offer us and those who come after a better life. That's why #IStandWithTheWGA and #IVotedYes.

To be clear, I'm a proud member of the @WGAEast. I went through staffing season sans an agent and with a new manager. I was fortunate enough to come out with a gig.
It came from my work, my relationships, and my work.
I said work twice because it's the thing that matters.

I get to call a young writer tomorrow and tell them that myself and a MAJOR action producer would like to develop their spec script and set it up. #WGASolidarityChallenge #wgafeatureboost pic.twitter.com/y6LOA6QIHD

I'd like to thank all of the writers with whom I connected via #wgastaffingboost, #wgasolidaritychallenge, WGA mixers, coverage grids, friends, etc. which translated into reads, recommendations, meetings, and more! Praise Report: I started on NBC's Perfect Harmony this week! Yay!

An awesome effect of the writer solidarity movement is how it’s made me feel more empowered reaching out to people, so I re-pitched Harry Hamlin an old idea and HE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT. Any execs out there interested in HH as you’ve never seen him before? #WGADevelopmentBoost

Hi world, I have some exciting news to share…
I GOT STAFFED!!
My infinite thanks to everyone who has read or boosted me thus far, most especially @OKBJGM, @MorganicInk, @mbguercio, and @SueMChung. Plus a huge thanks and shoutout to @LizAlps for all her tireless gridding.

Watching all the #WGASolidarityChallenge success stories pouring in, I've never felt so proud to be a member of this community. (Writers in Hollywood, I mean – not people who drink during the daytime. Although, given our present circumstances, there's probably a lot of overlap.) pic.twitter.com/UbSLw4j4oG

Happy Monday! Still on standby to travel to LA for the meetings in the executives boardroom. It all started when I have been vocal on Twitter. #Twitterismyagent #grinding #pocdeaftalent #blackdeaftalent #ethnicityofdeaftalent #contentcreator #pocdeaftalentontvnow #hiredeafwriters #wgastaffingboost #wgafeatureboost • • • A lot of people hustle differently, and I was like, 'You know what, let me hustle and create, and let me have something to show,' cuz my hustle led to opportunity. – Yvonne Orji
Welcome back, #Verve! We're so happy to work with you again! Thank you for your support! Your writers are lucky to work with amazing agents who put #ClientsOverConflicts! #IStandWithTheWGA https://t.co/X71vjPJeNf

Yooooo! @WGAPerspective I received another email tonight from a showrunner who found me on ONE OF THE LISTS. This thing is working guys… IT'S WORKING. KEEP WORKING IT. Have faith. Dream big. Work hard. Never quit. #WGAStaffingBoost #WritingCommunity

I've heard from several people that they're having the best staffing season of their lives. I've heard from showrunners that they're being exposed to new voices they never would have read under the old system.

All WGA members… PLEASE take the time to watch the video that just landed in our inbox. This campaign is immensely difficult and we need reminders of why we waged it. I was feeling a bit at sea in terms of where we were… Chris just pointed the ship towards land. Far away… rough waters ahead… but land. Please take out your spyglass and take a look. #InSolidarity #istandwiththewga
