The Pullmans have been instrumental in going into Los Angeles communities to make collaborative plays; at their home in Montana they created a musical about the historical impact of drought and flood on ranching; they collaborated with Liz Lerman on "HEALING WARS" in 2014. They founded Hollywood Orchard (www.HollywoodOrchard.org) a local group who pick fruit in neighborhood yards with the owner's permission. The fruit is then packed for donation to local food banks.

Tamara Pullman spoke at the Awards ceremony. The Pullman's children Maesa and Jack were at the celebration. Bill Pullman is filming 'The Sinner' in New York and was unable to attend.  The Awards ceremony took place at the Millwick in Los Angeles
