First Lady Michelle Obama will appear at a June 13 event at the Writers Guild Theater with representatives from Hollywood’s major guilds to promote an initiative to assist military families.

AFTRA, the DGA, the Producers Guild of America, SAG and the Writers Guild of America West have formed a task force to provide creative and production support for the first lady’s Joining Forces Initiative, with hopes of also giving content creators ideas for incorporating stories of military families into their productions. The program was unveiled at a White House event in April, with screenwriter Katherine Fugate among those attending.

Obama also will be appearing at a series of fund-raising events that day, including a luncheon in Pasadena and a dinner at the home of designer Michael Smith and HBO executive James Costos.
