The WGAW’s Political Department advocates on public policy issues of direct concern to writers and the Guild and also oversees contributions to the WGAW PAC. Our goal is to educate and organize broad support among WGAW members and provide Guild members with access to elected representatives and other government officials.
What We Do
The WGAW’s Political Department fosters member participation in the political process, including testifying before legislative and regulatory bodies, writing op-eds, blogs, articles and letters to elected officials in order to influence opinion and public policy. Working with coalition partners our goal is to enhance the WGAW’s independent voice on behalf of our writers/members.
