You may already be aware that Equity's Equalities Committees are hosting a series of weekly virtual coffees to see us through self-isolation! Join us every Thursday at 1pm to ask questions and get updates from Equity staff on how to navigate freelance life in lockdown.
We want these meetings to be fully inclusive and accessible. If you have any access needs, including the need for a BSL interpreter, please email Lottie on email@example.com. Closed Captioning is available for any meeting you attend - just ask at the beginning via the chat function (this can be done privately to Lottie Stables if necessary).
Members can access recordings of previous Zoom sessions here.
As well as this programme of events, many branches are running Zoom meetings for their members. Please see your branch's webpage and check their social media for more information

Equity Zooms in on... Equity Campaigns
The devastating impact of Covid-19 has been felt particularly keenly in the entertainment sector, and it has made Equity's fight for fairness and equality for workers in the industry as important as ever.
Join Equity's Louise McMullan and Kate Jones and fellow Equity members to hear about the campaigning work the union has been doing - from lobbying for a Basic Income Guarantee for creative workers, to making clear demands about an inclusive, diverse recovery for the sector, and campaigning and winning on fair treatment of older workers in the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme.
Plus, hear about how you can get involved, including exciting plans for the launch of a new Equity National Campaigners Network to amplify members' voices and the collective strength of workers in the industry.
Equity is currently capturing evidence of the disproportionate negative impact of COVID measures on members based on their protected characteristics. We welcome examples of these being raised during the Zoom session.
