Over the past months, we called on you to help, and you delivered! Whether it was from making financial contributions, engaging on social media, writing letters to your elected officials, sharing your story with your community, or maybe all four, you, Western Fairs Association Members, delivered! Thank you for your participation and support of the Network of Fairs!
While our efforts have served as effective, we are not done. The Western Fairs Association and the California Fairs Alliance have been busy advocating on your behalf. Over the past months, we have engaged and had the pleasure of working with several Congressional leaders including Representative Josh Harder (D-CA-10) and Representative Jimmy Panetta (D-CA-20). Representative Harder has introduced his H.R. 7745 Protecting Fairs During Coronavirus Act that would establish a $5 billion federal grant program to offset fair revenue losses during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Representative Panetta introduced H.R. 7883, the Agricultural Fairs Rescue Act. The Western Fairs Association had the honor of connecting with both elected officials along with our fellow industry organizations, and are pleased to have been involved in creating two positive pieces of legislation for the Network of Fairs.
We thank the many elected officials and organizations who have worked collaboratively in support of the Fair Industry through these troublesome times. Together we can continue to build better fairs!
Below you will find ways that you can take action today! Both of these Bills need your support, so this week we are asking that you engage your community members, as well as send letters to your Congressional leaders, your elected officials for the U.S. House of Representatives, and Senate.
