Suite 1000 Spartanburg
Spartanburg County Council is attempting to legislate away our music scene. This new ordinance, if enacted, would primarily affect music venues that cater to people of color and lgbt folx who may not feel welcome in other spaces. This is a direct affront on our community’s ability to engage with the arts and culture at large, through a thin veil of “safety concerns.” Please plan on attending the county council meeting if you care about people of color, live music, artists, or minority communities. If you cannot attend, please call or email your county council members, which can be found here https://www.spartanburgcounty.org/directory.aspx?did=42
NOTE: I have tried to contact Debbie Ziegler, the county clerk, for more info and will let you know when I hear back.
Y’all, please show up, even if this doesn’t affect the venues you frequent. This a direct attack on our siblings in minority communities.
