DJ Green Lantern & A. Shaw have teamed up to head the Million DJ March this summer in Washington, DC
To be held August 28-30, the 3 day event calls on DJs, artists & community members to rally in the Nation's capitol to highlight issues affecting DJs, among which include union organization, compensation & recognition for their contributions to the music industry.
Shaw states "DJ's do not get fully recognized for the work they do...Label and major businesses who reap the rewards of default publicity need to pay attention and give more recognition and financial compensation to DJs for the promotion they provide, without which music sales would surely suffer."
"[DJs are] often harassed and legally penalized for their promotional efforts even when those efforts have been solicited directly by the labels and artists themselves: an arrangement that is known about throughout the industry but kept 'on the low,"
"I am calling upon the industry to show support for an event to unify deejays and help create future economic safety for those that have chosen this art form as a career,"
