This international day of action is to drum up public and Congressional awareness of the live event industry's importance in our local communities. We seek quick passage of the bipartisan RESTART Act to help smaller business and gig economy workers. This push is also to extend the PUA - Pandemic Unemployment Act - through collaborating with ExtendPUA.org. We are going red, for green. Get your chile lights out to shake your money maker!
This RED ALERT seeks to light up businesses, public buildings, sculptures, iconic structures, and local residences bathing them in red light from the instruments you see at concerts, conventions, promotions, film & television productions, trade shows, fiestas, weddings, and funerals.
A nationwide event will take place on Tuesday, September 1,, 2020, from 9PM-12midnight, when as many as 1,500 buildings across North America will be lit in red.
Ours was the first industry to close last March. Live Events could be the last sector to re-open due to the COVID-19 crisis.
