Hello ACTRAvists:

A reminder to join us at two rallies tomorrow in support of striking SAG-AFTRA and WGA members, on day 486 of the shameful lockout of ACTRA performers by the ICA.

SAG-AFTRA National Vice President, Los Angeles, Michelle Hurd will join Noble and many other high profile ACTRA Members and union leaders in downtown Toronto to push back on corporate greed of advertising agencies, studios, and streamers who refuse to bargain fairly.

WHERE:            Amazon and Apple Headquarters: 120 Bremner Blvd, Toronto, ON
(Directly southwest of Union Station)
