I had the pleasure of joining local members of the Recording Academy along with members in ALL 50 STATES for District Advocate Day lead by the Recording Academy's Advocacy arm to lobby for legislative reform as it relates to creators' rights. This is the largest grassroots lobbying effort in the country and the first ever to take place in all 50 states.

While I joined members at Congressman Robert Woodall's (R-GA) for the national District Advocate day, I will lead a team of members later this fall in meeting with Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) to encourage support for fair pay to creators, producers, studio workers, and legacy artists through legislative reform.
