Service & Solidarity Spotlight: Actors and Writers Explain How Supporters and Fans Can Support Them

SAG-AFTRA and WGA members on strike

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our Service & Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Actors and writers are on strike, fighting for their future, and fans and supporters are wondering how they can help. Here are what members of SAG-AFTRA and the Writers Guild of America (WGA) are asking supporters to do. First, people can share, like and comment on social media posts about the strike. Fans are encouraged to join picket lines in their local area or bring signs, water and snacks to picketers. Those who aren’t near a picket line can donate to SAG-AFTRA’s Entertainment Community Fund and nonaffiliated crowdsourced fundraisers like The Union Solidarity Coalition, and Groceries for Writers. Boycotting projects made by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) is not currently requested.
