It’s clear that the next four years will demand our vigilance, hard work, and determination.
Why does the future of music matter, in a world where so much else is at stake?
You probably have your own answer to that question. Music, after all, is able to speak to us, soothe us, and rile us up like nothing else can, especially in times like these.
We believe music is worth fighting for, right now.
For sixteen years, Future of Music Coalition has been a fierce, independent voice for musicians in Washington DC. Our work is rooted in a fundamental critique of power structures, business practices, laws and policies that can result in ill-treatment of musicians. We have a long history of research, education, and advocacy which have led to practical tools and tangible victories within the music industry and beyond.
In these next four years, we’ll continue to fight for musicians on the issues that impact them: defending Net Neutrality, preserving the Affordable Care Act, copyright modernization, media mergers, fairness in music licensing, federal support for the arts, free expression, and more.
But perhaps more importantly, we believe in the power of music, and we intend to continue to defend the musicians who create it.
May music be a positive, unifying force in these divisive times. Thanks for your support.
