MUSICIANS PROTECT THE ARTS  
 
It's been almost a week since President Trump released his initial
budget blueprint. As musicians know by now, the budget proposal eliminates the NEA and privatizes the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Click on Local 802's action link here and make sure your voice is heard to save the arts. Stay in touch with all of Local 802's campaigns, including our new #MobileOfficeHours, by checking in at our political action page. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  
 
REST IN PEACE: We're
sad to report the recent deaths of Local 802 members Jim Czak and Laura Flax. Please share with us your memories of Laura or Jim here; we may ask if we can print your reminiscences in our union magazine Allegro.
