In recognition of his work in support of environmental and conservation issues, Harrison Ford will be honored by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation with the Artists Inspiration Award, alongside fellow recipient Lady Gaga. The SAG-AFTRA Foundation works to recognize those who have distinguished themselves in the advancement of humanitarian and philanthropic causes.
From a report by The Hollywood Reporter:
For more than 25 years, Ford has championed the environment through his support of Conservation International, where he currently serves as vice chairman of the board of directors. Conservation International is a nonprofit group that protects biodiversity in trouble spots internationally. In addition, Ford has actively supported charities including Riverkeeper, Young Eagles, EarthShare and Restore Hetch Hetchy.
Ford next voices a role in the animated feature Secret Life of Pets 2 and also will reprise his role of Indiana Jones in the franchise’s fifth film, with Steven Spielberg directing.
