Join the #JustOne CASE Act Campaign

By December 20, 2019 Advocacy, Strictly Business Blog

The new campaign is called #JustOne – since there is just one senator standing between the creator community and the passing of the CASE Act, and that is Oregon Senator @RonWyden. See options for action below.

Action #1: Create a #JustOne Selfie and Post

To kick things off, we’re inviting you to take selfies (and/or short video clips) that depict you holding up one index finger to indicate #JustOne Senator is holding up the CASE Act, and looking for you to encourage as many creators (and friends of the creator community) as possible to take selfies (and/or short video clips) and participate in the #JustOne campaign.

Campaign Hashtags: #JustOne, #CASEAct and #MySkillsPayBills. And when tweeting messages, please be sure to tag Senator @RonWyden.

Quick tip regarding selfies: Feel free to look serious when taking selfies for this campaign, but remember to keep it above board and no need to look “menacing”.

And here’s a link to a FB photo frame (thanks for creating this, Jenna Close!):

Just click on the “the case act” to find it. ASMP is listed as the owner, but everyone is welcome to use the frame.

Action #2: Repost and Retweet current #JustOne content

If you don’t want to create your own #JustOne selfie to post, please feel free to repost/retweet the images currently posted on ASMP social media channels listed below and share them with your colleagues, friends, and family.

  • It doesn’t seem possible that just one senator would be able to stop justice in its tracks — and yet that’s exactly what Oregon Senator Ron Wyden is doing regarding the CASE Act. Contact him at 202-224-5244 or senator_wyden@wyden.senate.gov and urge him to stop standing in the way of the creative community by lifting his hold on the bill. #JustOne
  • There’s just one senator standing in the way of access to justice for the creative community: Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon. Email him at senator_wyden@wyden.senate.gov or call him at 202-224-5244 TODAY to urge him to lift his hold on the CASE Act. #JustOne
  • [Sen. Ron Wyden] made promises at the first [townhall], which he apparently hasn’t kept,” says Oregon photographer and ASMP national board vice-chair Michael Shay. “We’re very concerned about why Senator Wyden … is the only guy standing in the way of passing the CASE Act. He’s the only senator who has a hold on a bill that passed 400 to 11 in the House of Representatives. ”Read the full Billboard article here: https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/legal-and-management/8546320/case-act-stalled-senate-ron-wyden
