NOTICE: Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201), which was passed by the House of Representatives Saturday, is a good start to providing relief to workers. However, the provisions on the table for emergency paid leave benefits won’t apply to displaced entertainment workers because of the requirements for days worked on a job to qualify.

Entertainment workers shouldn’t be collateral damage in the fight against COVID-19. We need a special Emergency Coronavirus Economic Support Benefit geared to include workers who have a bona fide, good faith offer to work that gets canceled due to the coronavirus.

Click here to tell congress to include entertainment workers in their coronavirus relief package.

NOTICE: Governor Ducey announced to today that AZ would be following the CDC recommendations in regard to public gatherings -  "Arizona is following @CDCgov's new guidance that large events and mass gatherings be cancelled. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings & other types of assemblies.  This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as institutes of higher learning or businesses and applies to events of 50 people or more." --- The CDC recommendations is for 8 weeks -  

We are recommending that everyone contact the Governor of Arizona - Doug Ducey - (602) 542-4331 and every US Representative/Senator - State Representatives/Senators for your districts and ask them what they are doing about DES Unemployment and Worker Relief for ALL film/media/entertainment/convention workers.
