You might be one of the many supporters of the WGA Strike, but you may have zero ideas on how to actually get involved and show your support. In reality, there are several, easy actions you can take.
1. Write the Studios
The easiest of these is an online tool called Write the Studios. All you have to do is go to this website and fill out a text form. They even have a sample letter that you do not have to modify if you’d rather just use theirs. You can select a television show to support, fill in an email address and click send.
Pencils2MediaMoguls is a website that sells pencils to the public. They send all of these pencils to the studios in order to display to them the amount of support the public has for the writers and the television shows.
3. Sign a Petition
An online petition is located here. So far, there are almost 62,000 signatures.
Food4Thought was originally created (by fans) to deliver pizza to Joss Whedon on the picket line. It has developed into something more, and now they are accepting donations for food drops to writers, actors and other supporters on the picket lines every day. You can even organize your own food drop.
5. Join the Picket Line
If you live on the West Coast, you can visit the WGA West website for picket line dates and locations. If you live on the East Coast, you can check out the WGA East website. There are currently two strike events scheduled in New York City for this week, and many more than that scheduled in Hollywood.
Two of these options require nothing more than a few clicks of the mouse. I think the writers deserve at least that much from those of us who support them.
