Actors' Equity Association Endorses Reverend Raphael Warnock for United States Senate

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

"Reverend Warnock is focused on lowering costs for hardworking families and holding corporations accountable for price-gouging, from the gas pump to the pharmacy counter, which will benefit arts workers across Georgia," said Al Vincent Jr., executive director of Actors' Equity Association. "We are excited to make sure Equity members across the Peach State know that Reverend Warnock will also be an advocate for tax fairness for arts workers and that they should vote to return him to the Senate this fall."

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

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).
