WeMakeEvents North America is spearheading the #RedAlertRESTART Day of Action on Tuesday, September 1st, and several buildings in Pittsburgh will be lighting their facilities in red to show their support.
According to a press release that came out today, the goal of the initiative is to "raise public awareness about the economic plight of the Live Events Industry and urge Congress to pass the RESTART Act, as well as extend and expand PUA for 1099 workers and FPUC to provide financial assistance to the unemployed."
Since live events were shut down back in March, venues around the country and millions of people have been impacted. The RESTART Act is a piece of legislation critical to the survival of the industry, and support for #ExtendPUA and FPUC is necessary to help the people that are unable to return to work until live events start happening again.
Here is a list of buildings here in the Pittsburgh that are participating tomorrow night: Allegheny County Courthouse, The August Wilson African American Cultural Center, Black Forge Coffee House, Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall, Club Café, The David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Fifth Avenue Place, The Gulf Tower, Heinz Hall, Hunt Library, Hughie’s Event Production Services, Koppers Building, Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center, Mr. Smalls Theatre, The Pittsburgh City-County Building, The Pittsburgh Playhouse, PPG Paints Arena, Purnell Center for the Arts, The Rex Theater, River Vue Apartments Building, The Roxian Theater, Stage AE, Three Rivers Entertainment & Production, Thunderbird Cafe & Music Hall, Vincent Lighting Systems.
