09/03/2020

Many of the 12 million professionals in the live events industry are desperate for financial help. It was this heartbreaking fact that became a call to action for thousands of event contractors from Hawaii to Massachusetts on September 1, 2020.

#WeMakeEvents was a stunning example of folks coming together to call attention to the plight of our live events industry colleagues and generate public awareness and support of the RESTART Act for Small Businesses, currently stalled in Congress. This act extends and expands the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUA) and Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) for displaced workers.

However, over the course of an incredibly tight two-week planning period, the project became much more than an important and wildly successful public service announcement. The task of producing an effort in New England where over 150 buildings and attractions were artfully illuminated in red light, brought a long disbursed community back together in a collaborative spirit that so many had yearned for since the pandemic forced us out of work in March 2020. Hundreds of events people across New England were united in purpose; for a brief moment we were back at work designing, producing, installing, and promoting. The positive energy generated was palpable. Available Light was grateful and honored to be counted among this amazing group of volunteers that created this Herculean event.

This country was built on public discourse and a desire to protect the most vulnerable among us. These sentiments drove the immense outpouring of volunteer action and equipment donation required to produce #WeMakeEvents. The live events industry was the first to experience the immediate and almost complete collapse of economic activity and, because all we do depends on the gathering of large public crowds, we will be the last to exit this crisis.

We ask that you reach out to your Congressional leadership and express what Live Events mean to you and that we need RESTART and PUA/FPUC immediately! Go to www.WeMakeEvents.org and use the automated tool to easily send your local legislators an Email.

“These shows don’t just magically appear. These people are hardworking that know what they’re doing… These are people with families. They’ve got spouses and children, mortgages, and bills. And right now they’re making nothing.”

-Billy Bob Thornton on why he supports the RESTART Act.

Let your members of Congress know that we need them to pass the RESTART Act and extend PUA. Visit www.wemakeevents.org to fill out a short form.
