Statement From The PGA Presidents

Posted By Administration, Monday, October 16, 2017

From Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary, Presidents of the Producers Guild of America, on behalf of the PGA National Board of Directors and Officers:

"This morning, the PGA's National Board of Directors and Officers decided by unanimous vote to institute termination proceedings concerning Harvey Weinstein's membership.

As required by the PGA's Constitution, Mr. Weinstein will be given the opportunity to respond before the Guild makes its final determination on November 6, 2017. 

Sexual Harassment of any type is completely unacceptable.  This is a systemic and pervasive problem requiring immediate industry-wide action.  Today, the PGA's National Board and Officers -- composed of 20 women and 18 men -- created the Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force specifically charged with researching and proposing substantive and effective solutions to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

The PGA calls on leaders throughout the entertainment community to work together to ensure that sexual abuse and harassment are eradicated from the industry."
