The People That Bring You Live Events Need Your Support [AUDIO]
This pandemic has taken it's toll on everyone, so it's easy to overlook groups that need our help. I for one am almost ashamed by the fact I didn't think about people I work very closely with, the men and women that provide us with live entertainment and help us find escape from day to day life through live events. Wemakeevents.org is an easy way you can show your support, raise awareness and even help enact needed change that could save live events for years to come.
So what exactly is Wemakeevnts.org trying to achieve? Here's their mission statement:
We are a passionate team of industry professionals, with a goal… To bring much needed attention to the fact that we were the first to be shutdown by COVID-19, and will be the last to return. We are asking the public to support our mission and for gov’t officials to adopt the RESTART Act, and a continuation / extension of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance which provides additional funding to those who are currently out of work
Levack and Goz were joined by Nickie Pollacek who helped explain why this is a "Human issue and not a political issue." Listen below to hear why this is so important and how you can help. I think it'sextrememly imprtant to remember all of the people on the verge of bankruptcy and homelessness that we could be helping simply by listening below and then heading to wemakeevents.org.
Here's what to do next:
1. Email us and let us know you want to help. We’re signing on regional leaders in all markets to built teams and engage.
2. Share our info using #WeMakeEvents, #RedAlertRESTART and #ExtendPUA
