The National Independent Venue Association, or NIVA, has launched a new campaign aimed at providing aid to independent venues, festivals and promoters across the country.

Dubbed ‘Save Our Stages’, the campaign is urging music fans to call on their representatives to support the RESTART act, which would provide financial support in various forms to small businesses such as venues. The motion also calls for items such as the Ticket Refund Tax Credit, which would help venues and promoters stay afloat as they refund countless tickets for canceled shows.
