ALERT - Help Pass the HEROES Act
Posted On: Jul 26, 2020

Sisters, Brothers, Kin,

A sincere thank you to everyone who called, demonstrated, and wrote to their representatives yesterday. Together, we made an incredible 9,000 calls to encourage the passage of the HEROES Act and overwhelmed several senate answering machines with our message: The workers who make American art and culture happen shouldn’t be left behind during this ongoing health crisis.

We know that many of you were not able to reach your senator as a result of their voicemail boxes being full, so we encourage you to write a letter or try reaching them again later in the week.

The fight to extend unemployment benefits for entertainment workers is still far from over. In the days ahead, politicians in Washington will continue to hammer out the specifics of subsequent COVID relief legislation and it remains uncertain what deals and compromises will be made. What we do know is that our voices have been heard, and we made a powerful impact on numerous legislators who were on the fence. Thanks again for your activism, we will continue to provide updates and opportunities for action until appropriate steps are taken to protect entertainment workers and their families.

In Solidarity,

Team IATSE
