Surprise, surprise: Musicians back Biden/Harrismain
As ever, the AFM in New York backs the Democratic ticket.
The Local 802 Executive Board made the following statement: “The professional music community needs a robust recovery of the economy and the arts, but we also need strong investments in the nation’s healthcare and pension systems, a strengthening of labor laws that protect the rights of all working people, and — more than ever — a country committed to mutual respect. We need a president who affirms that Black Lives Matter and an administration that fights for the rights of women, immigrants, people of color and all Americans. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the candidates who are clear, obvious choices to move our country forward. We enthusiastically endorse the Democratic ticket in the 2020 election and call on our members to help get out the vote!”
