82% of showrunners are white. They are the people who hire writers, crew, and have final story decisions. All POC COMBINED make up only 18%. That's a stupid statistic. Still, it's reality. And, POC writers are the ones who suffer because of very real statistics like this one.
Immigrant essential workers are part of our nation's infrastructure and have more than earned a path to citizenship after aiding in the pandemic recovery efforts.
