Make Your Voice Heard on Capitol Hill.

Join ASMP and other creators for July Advocacy ‘Fly-In’ scheduled this week – July 17th & 18th.

7.15.19 Editor’s Note: See schedule updates below.

ASMP and its community of visual creator groups have pivoted CASE Act advocacy efforts towards the Senate this month and scheduled a rash of in-person and online advocacy activities, as the Senate Judiciary Committee (SJC) moves the CASE Act forward with a mark-up hearing scheduled for Thursday, July 18th.

To secure additional support of the Senate CASE Act bill (S. 1273) among members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, we want to show strength in numbers to current non-sponsoring Senators on the Committee, so we invite you to participate in the legislative experience by joining ASMP on Capitol Hill for briefings, meetings, and hearings scheduled for July 17th and 18th.

If you can join us on July 17th and/or July 18th, please send an RSVP to advocacy@asmp.org. So that the  Fly-In coordinators can accommodate members in meeting schedules, please include the following information in your email:

  • Creator name
  • City + state + zip code
  • Occupation (ex: songwriter, photographer, designer, etc.)
  • Email address
