From the Co-Chairs

American innovation hinges on creativity -- it allows our kids to dream big and our artists to create works that inspire us all. The jobs that result are thanks entirely to our willingness to foster creative talent, and an environment where it can thrive.

The economic contributions made by the creative community keep our nation competitive in a global economy. These works are among our most precious exports because the ingenuity, skill and craftsmanship of American creators cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world.

We started this caucus to fight for individual creators whose rights are often not fully valued or understood. Creative rights matter, and need to be protected, just as we would protect someone's property rights, human rights, and First Amendment rights.
