Crew Nation is making another round of grants available, as they did in April, this time for anyone who was affected by the layoffs in July, August and September. One of the conditions of this one is that you did not get any money from the previous round.

Volunteer to Help Us! #RedAlertRESTART Providence

Fill out this form to Volunteer

We need labor help and resource help to Light Providence RED on Tuesday September 1st, to call attention to the plight of the Live Events Industry since the shutdown in March.

#WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART September 1, 2020

Local 23 is going to LIGHT PROVIDENCE RED

#WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART and #ExtendPUA represent a major call to action on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, imploring the US Congress to pass the RESTART Act (S.3814) as quickly as possible, offering economic relief to the Live Events Industry, which has been shuttered since March 2020, putting millions of people out of work. Additionally, the movement is to support ExtendPUA.org in their efforts towards continuation and extension of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance to provide relief to those without work due to COVID-19.

The new date is September 1, 2020, when buildings, structures, and residences will be lit in red from 9 pm – 12 am (local time in each market) as the event rolls across North America. The goal to raise public awareness that the Live Events Industry is on Red Alert for its very survival, and create congressional pressure to act now.

As theaters, concert tours, festivals, opera houses, trade shows, and other live events as well as film and television production remain closed, or open on a very limited basis, the entire industry is impacted, from designers, technicians, programmers, and stagehands to rental shops, manufacturers, and distributors of entertainment technology. The first industry to close last March, Live Events could be the last sector to re-open due to the COVID-19 crisis.

For information about joining the event and lighting your building red, please contact:
