On October 26, 2016, Rachel helped lead a meeting between Congresswoman Dina Titus and a lively and articulate group of members of The Recording Academy from Las Vegas. The group advocated for reforming copyright laws to help music creators get more fairly compensated for the use of their work.

This was the first meeting ever between Rep. Titus and music creators. During the meeting, we acknowledged Rep. Titus' impressive work as a published music historian. Thank you to Zoe Thrall, director of Studio at the Palms, and Neil Crilly, Western Regional Director of The Recording Academy, for helping lead this awesome meeting. Thank you to all involved for sharing your passion for the business of music!
