Your voice has made a real difference as Congress shapes relief and recovery resources, and it’s time to be heard once again! In the coming weeks, Congress will finalize the contents of massive legislative vehicles intended to build the nation’s infrastructure and provide resources to support recovery amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This legislation is being called a once-in-a-generation investment in U.S. infrastructure and growth. We strongly encourage you to participate in this orchestra advocacy campaign, in partnership with the wider arts and nonprofit networks. The League’s Recovery Issue Center includes a full slate of policy priorities being advanced, including support for our nation’s cultural agencies, nonprofit policies, and the ongoing need for relief funding.
