Actors' Equity Association announced that Equity's National Council has voted to endorse Rep. Chellie Pingree's reelection campaign for United States Congress on behalf of the more than 51,000 actors and stage managers working in live entertainment.

"In Congress, Rep. Pingree has been one of our champions fighting to strengthen the National Endowment for the Arts so that we can put more people to work in the arts across the country in good jobs that can support a family," said Al Vincent Jr., executive director of Actors' Equity Association. "We're proud to call Rep. Pingree a friend and ally and look forward to continue working with her to fight for tax fairness for arts workers and helping to grow the number of middle-class arts workers in our country."
