SAG-AFTRA To Honor Kerry Washington With Actors Inspiration Award

Kerry

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation announced today that SAG, Emmy, Golden Globe nominated Actress Kerry Washington will receive the Actors Inspiration Award, to be presented at its 7th Annual Los Angeles Golf Classic on Monday, June 13th at a private golf club in Burbank, California. The star of ABC’s Scandal and HBO’s Confirmation is being recognized by the Foundation as a SAG-AFTRA member who has given back to fellow actors and the community at large.

 

A longtime champion of civil rights and public service, Washington was appointed by President Barack Obama to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in 2009.  Washington is a strong supporter of President Obama and has campaigned on his behalf; she commanded the national stage on the final night of the 2012 Democratic National Convention in a moving address that urged Democrats to get out the vote. In 2013 Washington was honored with the NAACP President’s Award, which recognized her special achievements in furthering the cause of civil rights and public service. In 2014, Time magazine included Washington on its annual Time 100 list of the Most Influential People in the World. Washington received the GLAAD Media Vanguard Award in 2015 and the ACLU Bill of Rights Award in 2016.
 

We are overjoyed to present Kerry Washington with our Actors Inspiration Award. Kerry’s continuous support for our programs and her fellow actors, and her dedication to countless social and political causes exemplify the essence of this award,” said SAG-AFTRA Foundation President JoBeth Williams. “The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Annual Golf Classic is essential to raising the much-needed funds for our organization’s Emergency Assistance program and Catastrophic Health Fund for SAG-AFTRA members facing physical and financial hardships of all kinds, and we are beyond grateful to Kerry for graciously accepting this honor at this important event.”
