Over the summer, Equity’s volunteer team – the Trailblazers – made thousands of contacts with other rank and file Equity members about what they want the Union to look like by the year 2020. And there were several common themes that ran through the conversations.
One point stood out particularly strong in the conversations – members outside the offce cities want to see and hear from Equity more, and they want additional help on creating work opportunities in their own communities.
For that reason, during the #EquityStrong campaign, the Union committed to building a strategic and modern organizing department. And that’s why the frst position created after the campaign concluded was a new Organizer for Liaison Areas. Stefanie Frey was hired to fill this new organizing position.
