ASTA Task Force: Returning to School During COVID-19 – ASTA has convened a group of experts to develop guidance for string educators returning to school in the fall. See task force members.

ASTA condemns the continuing acts of violence against the Black community. We denounce racism, hatred, and violence in any form and raise our voices in support of our Black members and our Black string students. Black Lives Matter. Read the ASTA Board of Directors Statement.
