It seems pretty simple -- a US Postage Stamp to mark the 100th anniversary of Actor's Equity

A simple petition to sign to vote for a Postage Stamp to celebrate 100 years of Actor's Equity.

Here's the story ---

On May 26, 2013, AEA will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of its founding. Many events are being planned to celebrate a century of professional theatre in America and AEA's unique contribution to our country's culture and society. We are applying to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee and the Postmaster General of the Unites States to be honored with a commemorative stamp. The process is highly competitive and has to begin years in advance.

We are doing everything we can to be selected- making a good case that AEA merits the honor of a stamp, reaching out to elected officials and organizing an AEA Centennial Stamp Committee under Kate Burton and Dana Ivey's leadership to engage celebrities in the effort.


Here's the wording of the petition:

May 2009

Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee
c/o Stamp Development
U.S. Postal Service
1735 North Lynn St., Suite 5013
Arlington, VA 22209-6432

Dear Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee:

For almost 100 years, Actors' Equity Association has represented America's professional theatre, ensuring the dignity of Actors and Stage Managers throughout the United States, serving as the conscience of the professional theatre community, exemplifying our National ideals of hard work, artistic excellence, social equality and humanitarian values, and bringing the words, music and dance of American plays and musicals, in good times and bad, to audiences numbering millions of Americans and generations of theater lovers around the world.

I am, therefore, proud to add my name to those who support the issuance in May 2013 of a national commemorative stamp to mark the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Actors' Equity Association and 100 years of professional American theater.
