Save Our Stages

Performing Arts Fort Worth is joining with arts organizations all over the country to urge Congress to pass the Save Our Stages Act to save our independent live entertainment venues and extend pandemic unemployment assistance to help our thousands of struggling workers. Our nation’s venues and their thousands of workers are struggling to survive - through no fault of their own - and need assistance NOW. 

We thank Texas' own Senator John Cornyn and Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar for introducing the Save Our Stages Act.  

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP

Please contact your Senators and Representatives today and tell them you support the Save Our Stages Act! Click on the links below to see if your representatives are a co-sponsor of the bill, as well as for information on how to get in touch with their offices.
