There are many ways to support the efforts of the coalition.
Show Your Support for Historical Recordings –Sign This Petition!
I support the efforts of the Historical Recording Coalition for Access and Preservation to enact changes to U.S. law to permit and encourage the preservation of our rich and varied audio heritage, and free and open access to it, while respecting legitimate interests of creators.

Contact Your Member of Congress!
We found when we introduced our proposals to Washington that most legislators have no idea that preservation and access to historical sound recordings is so severely restricted in the U.S. The most effective way to get their support for change is direct contact from their constituents. That means you. Here are two simple documents that show you how you can make a difference.
