DGA Announces Hotline to Report Racial Harassment
The Guild believes the workplace should be a respectful and inclusive environment and that every individual has the right to a safe workplace. We condemn racism and are committed to developing solutions to help eradicate it from our industry.
With the goal of pushing the entertainment industry toward achieving safer, fairer, and more equitable workplaces, the DGA has instituted a Racial Harassment Hotline for members to report racist incidents they’ve experienced in the workplace.
These conversations will be kept private. Trained executive staff will take the calls, collect the pertinent information, refer the member to outside resources as necessary, and (with the permission of the member) pursue claims with the Employers when necessary.
While the DGA continues working toward industry-wide solutions, we are available to you to discuss any concerns you may have. Members can also speak to their Field Representatives who will listen and refer them to appropriate resources.
To report a racist incident in the workplace, or if you would like to have a discussion about your situation, please call DGA Assistant Executive Director Mayra Ocampo at (310) 289-2006 or email her at email@example.com. After business hours, please contact the DGA’s Safety Hotline at (800) 342-3457.
