With arts funding under threat, crucial negotiations coming up and the video games strike entering a new phase, member involvement is more important than ever. Want to get involved? Here are four ways members can channel their energy and inspiration into actions happening now. VIDEO GAMES STRIKE SAG-AFTRA has been ramping up the pressure on the 11 struck video game companies. From social media virtual pickets to a rally near SAG-AFTRA Plaza, the membership has been engaged in helping bring about a fair deal for voiceover and performance-capture artists. Want to join the effort? Sign up online at A CALL TO ARTS Together with the former Obama administration and AFI, SAG-AFTRA recently achieved the goal of reaching 1 million volunteer hours in service to our communities and the next generation of artists.

You can get started, or register mentor hours by visiting GET INVOLVED SAG-AFTRA locals are regularly hosting educational opportunities, calls to action, mixers and membership meetings.
