Roadie Advocacy 2.0: All Together, Six Feet Apart

In the wake of COVID, many of our colleagues found opportunities to engage in the political process in ways they might never have considered or been able to before. Today we're joined by Bobby Schnedier (PM), Jim Digby (TM/Founder of the Event Safety Alliance), Rayna Zemel (Playback Engineer), Mariah Kennemer (Live Nation Tour Rep), and Ray Amico (TM/PM) to discuss the different avenues they each pursued to get involved in the 2020 election, the recent vaccine and concert news, and the ways people can continue to be involved.
