   While Equity is concerned with immediate benefits for artists, it also believes that there are long-range objectives that should be pursued with equal vigor. To this end, we are studying plans to project and support:
   Governmental art programs
   United Nations (International exhibition and convention)
   Standard Contracts
   Television (Activising art programs; contracts and fees)
   Non-dealer Members exhibitions

   Since it is impossible to eleaborate fully on all of the above at this writing, I shall list just a few of the highlights to date. 

   Numerous members have availed themselves of the legal council that Equity offers on matters ranging from non-payment for commissioned works to dealer-artist relations. We are proud of the number of victories we have won resulting in considerable economic gains for many of our members.
