I have been very vocal about this subject on facebook and twitter but have yet to share anything via emails.
Well that changes now
If you are a member of AEA (the American Equity Association for Actors) then PLEASE familiarize yourself with the next referendum they are trying to put into place here in Los Angeles.
I love my theatre company here in LA. It has not only kept me on stage but kept me acting as a whole. I have been privileged to not only be a part of wonderful plays ON
stage but BEHIND stage too.
I have had invaluable experiences with this company and bless the day my friend told me I should join.
I have made life long friends
I have a theatre home
I have a theatre family
This new referendum I believe WILL
kill my theatre home
I'm voteing NO
I want there to be a change for sure but I dont believe the change they are asking for is the right one. I vote NO because I want to go back to the drawing board with Equity and come up with something I can say YES to.
Believe me a YES on this is a YES. Period. There is no going back.
But I dont want to make up your mind FOR
So I ask that you just listen to the NPR radio debate.
Two from each side talked about why THEY felt THEIR
side was right
Then after please do your own research
has many articles and actors who are against this particular plan
BUT most IMPORTANTLY
if you are in LA pay your dues TODAY
so you can vote.
Have your voice heard.
If you are a member of AEA PLEASE pay your dues also (even if not in LA)
so that if/when it goes to a wider vote you can be able to give your opinion too
