At District Advocate day on Oct. 18, members of Congress from across the country turn their attention to you: the music advocate. As you no doubt have read in music publications, there has been a flood of activity in music policy lately. This is directly related to the impressive activism of music creators themselves. Your voice is being heard more than ever—and it is your voice that will make positive change in our community." - Neil Portnow, President/CEO
