District Advocate

District Advocate is the largest grassroots advocacy movement for music and its makers. This year, nearly two thousand Recording Academy members across the U.S. met virtually with their Senators and Congressional Representatives to fight for continued COVID-19 relief and recovery assistance, social justice reform, and creators’ rights.

Earlier in the COVID-19 Lockdown, the Recording Academy members played an integral role in ensuring that the CARES Act provided critical support for the music community dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. As District Advocates they showed Congress this was no one hit wonder—there’s much more that lawmakers can and must do to protect music and its makers.
