The power of the arts has never been more urgent...and more necessary. What are the best ways that artists can engage in today's political climate? How can we plug into the connection between jazz and social justice? 
Join us on Monday, Feb. 13 at 5 p.m. at Local 802 to hear Lakecia Benjamin, Michael Leonhart, Rudresh Mahanthappa and Ulysses Owens Jr. lead an engaging discussion about social justice, diversity and entrepreneurship in jazz. You won't want to miss this FREE workshop. To reserve your free tickets now, click here.

Do you live in Harlem? There is a special election on Valentine's Day so DON'T FORGET TO VOTE! Local 802 and the Central Labor Council voted overwhelmingly to endorse Marvin Holland in the special election for Manhattan's ninth City Council district.
Marvin Holland has a proven track record as a champion for hardworking New Yorkers and their families, devoting his entire career to fighting for the fair treatment of workers through collective bargaining, legislation, and advocacy. He fundamentally understands the challenges facing thousands of musicians in New York City, and will partner with us as we work to address the misclassification of musicians, poor funding for the arts and lack of accountability for venues, producers and employers who receive public funding but fail to treat musicians fairly. Read our full endorsement of Marvin Holland here, along with voting tools and links. And please remember to VOTE on Feb. 14.
