The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), which was formed to try to save independent venues and promoters across the country, have started a campaign to 'Save Our Stages'.  They are asking you to support and cosponsor S. 4258, the Save Our Stages Act introduced by Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and S. 3814/H.R. 7481, the RESTART Act  introduced by Senators Young and Bennet in the Senate and Representatives Golden and Kelly in the House.  Doing so would ensure that independent venues – arguably the industry hardest hit by the pandemic – receive the financial assistance needed to be able to reopen their doors when it is safe to do so. 
 
Many Senators and Representatives  are helping to #SaveOurStages, and The REVIEW is  asking you to support and cosponsor S. 4258, the Save Our Stages Act  and S. 3814/H.R. 7481, the RESTART Act.   Doing so would ensure that independent venues – arguably the industry hardest hit by the pandemic – receive the financial assistance needed to be able to reopen their doors when it is safe to do so. 
 
Without support from Congress, 90% of NIVA’s independent venues, festivals & promoters across America say they will be forced to close their doors forever. Congress will be voting THIS MONTH, so your help is needed NOW.  Go to www.SaveOurStages.com to send a letter to Congress.   The form for the letter is already filled in, you just have to add your name.  It takes less than 30 seconds.

Without inclusion in the next stimulus bill, this might be the last chance for your favorite independent venues, festivals and promoters. Tell your reps that life support for independent venues and promoters must be included.

Even if you’ve written once, please make your voices heard now, it’s quick, easy and free.  Ask your legislators to support and cosponsor S. 4258, the Save Our Stages Act and S. 3814/H.R. 7481, the RESTART Actwhich would ensure the survival of independent venues, festivals and promoters across the nation.
