The Pavilion to Light Up Red for #RedAlertRestart Campaign
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – On the evening of Tuesday, September 1, 2020, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion will be lit red for #RedAlertRESTART in support of performing arts industries—across our country and in our own community—that have been uniquely affected by the pandemic. This call to action will take place nationwide with as many as 1,500 locations across North America.
From 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Tuesday night, music venues nationwide will be lit red to highlight that the live events industry is on red alert for its survival.
The RESTART Act and the Save Our Stages Act offer economic relief to the live events industry, which has been shuttered since March 2020. Red Alert also advocates for extending Pandemic Unemployment Assistance to provide relief to those without work since March due to COVID-19. Nationwide, 12 million show workers are estimated to be unemployed because of COVID-19, including designers, technicians, programmers, stagehands, and others.
Additionally, the movement is to support ExtendPUA.org in its efforts towards the continuation and extension of the Pandemic Unemployment Act to provide relief to those without work due to COVID-19. Additional information about the campaign can be found online at https://wemakeevents.org/.
