Actress Dana Delany Named Creative Coalition Co-President

Actress Dana Delany joins actor Tim Daly as co-president of The Creative Coalition– an organization that frequently visits our DC stomping grounds.

FBDC first met Delany and Daly over Inauguration and then at festivities around the White House Correspondents Dinner (picture is from this year’s WHCA Dinner).

The Creative Coalition’s mission is to “educate and mobilize the arts and entertainment communities to create positive change in public policy.”
