ASMP and its community of visual creator groups have pivoted CASE Act advocacy efforts towards the Senate Judiciary Committee (SJC) to secure additional support of the Senate CASE Act bill (S. 1273) among members of the SJC.

So, while we have been urging members and non-member supporters to contact their Representatives, sign up to attend in district meetings, and thank the many House co-sponsors (and we don’t want to stop the House activity in securing co-sponsors, as it is working!), we now need members and supporters to pivot some of their attention and actions towards the Senate.

We invite members to contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (see full list of SJC members) by taking a few minutes to send off prepared emails and tweets with ONE CLICK to 1) thank the current sponsoring members of the Senate Judiciary Committee – Senators Durbin (D-IL), Hirono (D-HI), Kennedy (R-LA), and Tillis (R-NC) Blackburn (R-TN), and non-SJC member co-sponsor, Shaheen (D-NH) for supporting creators and small businesses everywhere; and to 2) urge the non-sponsoring members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to step up and co-sponsor the CASE Act.

Finally, while we pivot to focus our CASE Act campaign on the Senate, we don’t want to take the pressure off of the House and specifically the House Judiciary Committee, to secure their support of the CASE Act, so we would also like to invite or re-invite you to take two minutes for a ONE CLICK (see button below) to send a prepared email and tweet to thank CASE Act sponsoring members of the House Judiciary Committee and urge the non-sponsoring members of the Committees – House (HR2426)  – to support creators and sponsor the CASE Act.
