  • On May 8th, the AIMP joined the RIAA, and many other music business organizations, on a letter to congress for support under the CARES act.  While the CARES Act made important changes to our social safety net to ensure that gig workers could access relief during this crisis, many in the entertainment industry have been denied CARES Act benefits because of unclear and burdensome regulations. Congress can fix these issues easily, and should ensure the the entire "gig" economy is eligible for CARES Act relief.  Click here to read the letter.  
  • Then, on June 8th, the AIMP joined a united music community including top artists, managers, major and independent record companies, songwriters and publishers, and affiliated organizations and publicly released a letter supporting the long running campaign to repeal section 50-A of New York’s Civil Rights Law. Section 50-A hides records of police misconduct and abuse from the public. It is part of the infrastructure of secrecy that undermines reform of the police and justice for victims in New York.  Click here to read the letter.  
  • The AIMP Los Angeles Chapter presented the inaugural Linda Komorsky Liker AIMP Scholarship Award to its first recipient, Angela McPhee, during the "Update on the MMA/MLC" webinar on May 21st.
