Casting bias against the disabled and other groups

Casting bias by age, gender, race, ethnicity and disability remain problems for actors. SAG and the industry are making some progress in most areas, but one are that is lagging behind is in the area of performers with disabiliites, as the SAG report linked indicates. The report includes statistics on other groups and trend data.

Nevada branch local member on the Performers With Disabilities National Committee is council member Arttours Weeden. Contact Arttours through the SAG office at steven.clinton@sag.org.
