Current Advocacy Opportunities
Stolen Art & Creative Works
Recently we have been experiencing an influx of reports from our community about artwork and creative work being stolen and reproduced for sale without permission in mass quantities. We are seeking advocates who have expertise in art law, artists rights, intellectual property, royalties, and copyright permissions. In addition, those experts who are well-versed and skilled in liaising and analyzing deals would be most beneficial to our community.
Domestic Violence, Assault, & Mental Health
Artists reports of various types of assault and an increased request for access to affordable mental health care and therapy has grown. We are seeking licensed mental healthcare professionals, therapists, and counselors who are able to offer support and advocate on behalf of our members.
