Episode #95: District Advocate Day

Activism, Policy 0 comments
We talk a lot on this show about issues that affect musicians and the creative community, so how can people get involved and actually make a difference? For the last three years, the Recording Academy has led a grassroots campaign to mobilize the music community. Through their District Advocate day (formerly GRAMMYs in My District), artists have an opportunity to make an impact on music policy by speaking directly with their legislator. This year, District Advocate day falls on October 18th. Daryl Friedman, the Recording Academy’s Chief Industry, Government & Member Relations Officer joins us to discuss how Recording Academy members and anyone else interested can get involved. Glenn Lorbecki, producer and former Recording Academy Trustee, also shares his take on the District Advocate initiative and we revisit our conversation with musician Kris Orlowski, now President of the Recording Academy’s Pacific Northwest Chapter.
