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.
