We just got done with our Creative Rights Caucus event and we have to say... it was a GREAT SUCCESS! Staffers loved the opportunity to meet with our entire panel and hear about their journey through photography. Representatives Chu and Collins were present and eager to share the importance of small claims copyright protection and small business in general. Everyone who attended was extremely impressed with the event and have asked us to follow up with them in the future. We believe this event left a great impression about Small Claims with the attendees, highlighting why it is so important.
After we clean up the event, we are taking our wonderful panelists, along with other members of the Visual Arts Coalition, to an impromptu meeting with Representative Jerrold Nadler of NY. Representative Nadler is interested in hearing about Small Claims protection and why it is so important to visual artists.
After Representative Nadler, we are meeting with Representative Lamar Smith. Since Representative Smith has always been a champion for small business and Small Claims, we have to make sure we stop by and share our appreciation with him every time we come to DC!
There is plenty going on between now and tomorrow so stay tuned! Don't forget: encourage everyone you know to sign up and lend their support to the cause of Copyright Small Claims!
