You Can Support Independent Venues

 

If you want, sign the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) petition today.

To help raise awareness and support for the Save Our Stages Act, NIVA Colorado dubbed Wednesday, July 29th as the organization’s “Day of Action.” Two bills, S. 4258, the Save Our Stages Act, and S. 3814/H.R. 7481 RESTART Act, were introduced by Senators John Cornyn and Amy Klobuchar last week. 

The bills directly impact independent venues across the country, including Colorado-based venues.

“Our members told us months ago that if the shutdown lasted six months or longer and there wasn’t federal relief to hold them over, 90% of them would fold permanently,” said Dayna Frank, president of NIVA and CEO First Avenue Productions in Minneapolis, in a release.

“With no revenue and immense overhead, four months in, it’s already happening. The warning light is flashing red and our only hope is for legislation like Save Our Stages Act or RESTART Act to be passed before Congress goes on August recess. Otherwise, most businesses in this industry will collapse.”
