Local 764 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge
  Over the next 21 days we will embark on a journey to expand our understanding how race, power, oppression, supremacy and privilege are weaponized to create divisive intersections in our daily lives.  This 21 day challenge was created by Eddie Moore, Jr., an established diversity and inclusion advocacy expert.  

Our challenge will be curated from selections on our Racial Equity Resource List that will be posted on the Local 764 website.  Each day has a different article, essay, podcast or weblink to read/view (typically taking 15-30 minutes), over the next 21 consecutive days.  It has been intentionally crafted to focus on the Black American experience and the tenets of Anti-Racism. The assignments seek to expose participants to perspectives on elements of Black history, identity and culture, and to the Black community’s experience of racism in America. They will as well as provide a beginning context on the prevalence of white privilege and white supremacy in our American society.

The 21 days begin on Monday August 31st and will end on Sunday September 20.  We encourage all members participating to share their thoughts on the daily assignments in the “Chat” section of the posts on  the 764 website. 
We also encourage members to sign up for a LinkedIn Learning account through the Training Trust Fund in order to view one of the assignments later in the challenge.

The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) are proud to announce that Steiner Studios has been selected to develop a 500,000-square-foot film and television production hub on the Made in New York Campus at Bush Terminal in Sunset Park. The facilities will include eight new soundstages, gut-renovations of two historic buildings, and a new parking facility. Steiner will complete the adjacent Bush Terminal Piers Park and build a new playground designed with community input. By expanding production capacity and investing in skilled job training and talent development programs, the new production hub affirms our commitment to increasing access and opportunities for New Yorkers in the film and television industry and strengthens the City’s role as a center for film and television production.
