Help the UCB LA staff

UPDATE: Thank you again so much to everyone who has donated! We are a 100% grassroots campaign made up of former UCB staff affected by the layoffs, and I am working with my former colleagues from the Training Center and Box Office to gather contact information for everybody. Together, we are working out a fair distribution system with stakeholders from each part of UCB that was affected. Once the final list and distribution is set in stone, I will be responsible for Venmo-ing or Zelle-ing or PayPal-ing our beneficiaries.

As you may have heard, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and Training Center conducted mass layoffs, leaving almost all our staff (baristas, bartenders, house managers, theater managers, security, teachers, coaches, techs etc.) jobless and without a source of income. This fundraiser is meant to give our people some support for paying bills, getting medication, rent, food, and general survival during this crazy time. 

Love you, thank you and remember: be a bad scene partner and DON'T yes, and this virus!
