"Our dynamic television landscape is a catalyst for raising awareness of relevant issues around the globe," said Television Academy Chairman CEO Hayma Washington. "We are proud to be part of an industry that spreads understanding, uncovers truth, encourages compassion and shines a light on darkness."
Howard Meltzer, CSA, Governor for the Academy's Casting Peer Group, chaired this year's Television Academy Honors selection committee, with Mitch Waldow serving as vice-chair. Honorees represent a diverse spectrum of important issues challenging our world including sexual harassment, LGBTQ prejudice and acceptance, veterans' health care, teen mental health and suicide, racial discrimination, immigrant rights, and social justice.
