A2IM Associate Member Spotlight: Opposition’s Work for Peace Committee & Donation Drive

Over the past year, Opposition has stood firmly as allies in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. In an effort to continue our education and support for racial justice, Opposition has launched a committee within our parent company, BBTV, called Work For Peace

We know this isn’t just a moment, it’s a movement, and Opposition will be there every step of the way. One of our first initiatives is a Donation Drive with the goal of raising funds and awareness for the fight against racism, discrimination, and violent abuses of power. 

Without the contributions of black artists, black culture, and black communities, there is no Opposition, and more broadly, there is no music industry. We’ve selected ten Non-Profit organizations that are deeply committed to and representative of black individuals and communities. Opposition will match donations up to $15,000 so please take a moment and a few dollars to support these great organizations here.

Additional Resources: Support comes in many forms, including education. The Work For Peace committee has compiled a comprehensive educational resource ranging from documentaries and articles to social media posts and advanced readings that cover topics such as the BLM movement, systemic racism, policing, environment, and politics. View the resource here.

About A2IM:
A2IM is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit trade organization headquartered in New York City that exists to support and strengthen the independent recorded music sector. Membership currently includes a broad coalition of more than 700 Independently-owned American music labels. A2IM represents these independently owned small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) interests in the marketplace, in the media, on Capitol Hill, and as part of the global music community. In doing so, it supports a key segment of America’s creative class that represents America’s diverse musical cultural heritage. Billboard Magazine identified the Independent music label sector as 37.32 percent of the music industry’s U.S. recorded music sales market in 2016 based on copyright ownership, making Independent labels collectively the largest music industry sector.
