Press Release

SANTA MONICA, CA – Today, Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA), Co-Chair of the Congressional Creative Rights Caucus, joined music creators and Recording Academy members for the first ever town hall in preparation of Grammy’s on the Hill. Rep. Chu advocated for an increased music creator presence on Capitol Hill, and released the following statement:

“The voice of the everyday creator was not fully heard or understood during past efforts to protect works of the creative community. Creative works drive innovation and contribute to the very existence of our digital economy, adding more than $1 trillion to our GDP and consistently generating a positive trade balance with other countries. That’s why the needs of this industry must be recognized and addressed on Capitol Hill. As Co-Chair of the Creative Rights Caucus, I look forward to working with the music industry to ensure America’s creators have their voices heard and their rights protected.”
