Live webinar. The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment is hosting a free, live webinar on Thursday, August 10 at 4:00 PM to provide information and access to available resources. Below is the official announcement.
The City of New York recognizes that many workers are impacted by the WGA strike and the SAG-AFTRA strike. While we hope that agreements are reached soon, we want to ensure that all those impacted have access to support services during this time. The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment is hosting a free, live webinar to provide information and access to available resources. Representatives from New York State Department of Labor, the Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services, the Entertainment Community Fund (formerly Actors Fund), the Episcopal Actors’ Guild and Behind the Scenes will be participating and available to answer questions.
