Advocacy Training for Opera Trustees

Marc A. Scorca, president/CEO of OPERA America, and Laurie Baskin, director of research, policy and action at Theatre Communications Group, present a webinar for opera company trustees to learn the fundamentals of advocacy: how to carry messages and advance proposals to elected officials that will help the opera field recover and thrive. Citizen action is required to make certain communities are ready for recovery as soon as the coronavirus pandemic is contained. The many challenges to businesses and individuals emerging from the COVID-19 crisis — SBA loans, unemployment insurance, direct assistance to cultural organizations — require interventions where trustees can play an important role.
