Repealing The Cabaret Law

 
It’s a really important day for arts and culture in New York City. We can all do something to make an impact.

The NYC Cabaret Law – a law that makes dancing illegal at all but about 100 venues in New York – is the subject of a City Council public hearing today. 16 Council Members have signed on to the repeal of the law; 10 more are needed for cabaret to be DONE.

Every New York City voter can do something now to see it go away.

Please take a moment to call your NYC Council Member. You can find your Council Person’s name and number by entering your address here.

Once you’ve found your Council Member’s name, look at the list below to find their legislative office number, and call them. Don’t wait until later. Do it now while it’s on the top of your head. It’ll take you less than five minutes!

Council Members in bold have signed on. All the others are a priority on the call list. If a council member hears from even a handful of constituents, they take note, so this action is truly meaningful.

When you get someone on the phone, ask them to vote in favor of the Let NYC Dance Bill #1652. There’s a nice script (and a bevy of information) on the Let NYC Dance site if you need some guidance. If no one picks up the phone, leave a message.

Without further ado, here’s that list of Council Members:
