Actors' Equity Association Endorses John Fetterman for United States Senate

The move marks Equity’s first endorsement for political candidate in the state of Pennsylvania.



Actors' Equity Association's National Council has voted to endorse John Fetterman's campaign for United States Senate on behalf of the more than 51,000 actors and stage managers working in live entertainment.

"John Fetterman is a fighter for workers who will push to expand the right to organize, raise wages and benefits with a $15 minimum wage and strengthen families with the child tax credit," said Al Vincent Jr., executive director of Actors' Equity Association. "I am proud to say that John Fetterman will also be an advocate for tax fairness for arts workers, and I hope all our members in Pennsylvania support his campaign for U.S. Senate."

The move marks Equity's first endorsement for political candidate in the state of Pennsylvania.

Equity's public policy priorities include defending and protecting the right to collectively bargain, a prevailing wage in the arts, racial justice, a strong minimum wage, stronger federal and state arts funding, gun violence prevention, universal federal health care, tax fairness and LGBTQ non-discrimination protections.

ACTORS' EQUITY ASSOCIATION, founded in 1913, is the U.S. labor union that represents more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers. Equity endeavors to advance the careers of its members by negotiating wages, improving working conditions and providing a wide range of benefits (health and pension included).
