WATCH: Live Stream Tonight, September 1st RedAlertRESTART Light It In Red

Stage Directions • Uncategorized • September 1, 2020

Facebook and YouTube Live Streams for WeMakeEvents RedAlertRESTART are scheduled for 9:00 p.m.  – 1:00 a.m. EDT. As many as 1,500 buildings, iconic structures, and residences will light up in red on the evening of Tuesday, September 1, from 9:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m., local time, as the event rolls across the country.

This call to action was created by We Make Events North America, a coalition of live events professionals formed to urge Congress to pass the RESTART Act to help small businesses, and to extend and expand PUA for 1099 workers, and extend the $600 FPUC benefits for displaced workers.

As the buildings light up across the country, the thousands of people following this event on social media—4,000 followers and 625,000 people reached— are invited to watch RED ALERT LIVE, which will stream live from 9:00 p.m.  – 1:00 a.m. EDT on Facebook at; and on YouTube at

RED ALERT LIVE will not only show the buildings lit in red in over 60 cities coast-to-coast, but also include video footage, live interviews with regional directors and their special guests. The stream will begin in New York City and conclude in Los Angeles, two epicenters of live events that have been crippled by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Support for this project has been incredible, considering the national committee was formed on August 12, 2020, the day after the inaugural #WeMakeEvents activation took place in the UK.
