California's Film and Television Tax Credit and Diversity

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

(Los Angeles) – Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas (D-Los Angeles) would like to personally invite you to an informational hearing on Friday, February 24, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on “The Secondary Impact of California's Film and Television Tax Credit Program on Diversity?” in the auditorium of the Ronald Reagan State Building. The hearing will start a critical conversation to understand the impact of the Film and Television Tax Credit Program in diverse communities. A 2017 USC Annenberg study looked at diversity in Hollywood and recently concluded “… industry is woefully out of touch with America’s increasing diversity, despite increasing evidence that diversity is good for business.” Here’s more from Assemblymember Ridley-Thomas in this Assembly Access video. http://www.asmdc.org/ridley-thomas
