The Television Industry Advocacy Awards honors entertainment leaders who use their platform to enact positive change. From fighting for animal rights to bringing joy to hospitalized children, empowering women in Africa to spreading awareness about climate change, this year’s attendees are involved in a wide range of causes. Despite the different organizations with which they work, they all share one thing in common: a passion for activism.
Honorees at this year’s celebration include Scandal alum Tony Goldwyn who received his award for his involvement in Americare, presented to him by actress Minnie Driver.
Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte was recognized for his diversity activism and as the United Cerebral Palsy Ambassador, with this award presented to him by Renee Lawless.
Former CNN anchor Isha Seray was recognized for the founding of the W.E. Can Lead. movement.
The event honored leaders in the television industry who effectively use their voice for social cause. With the UN General Assembly recently concluding its annual meeting in New York, focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals is inspiring global dialogue. Opening remarks from UNA Executive Director Rachel Pittman ignited an inspirational evening of conversation about how the television industry can use their collective platform to advocate for awareness and to effect change.
