*Legal Defense Fund*

On May 12, the PBFC filed a lawsuit to compel Governor Newsom to reopen our industry. Combined with our #OpenSalonsNow PR/media campaign, that pressure worked in getting the Governor to authorize statewide reopenings!

Unfortunately most of our nail tech and skin care professionals are still left out in the heat and smoke during this horrendous California summer.  We have therefore repurposed our Legal Defense Fund to defend safe establishments who feel they have no choice but to reopen with or without official authorization.

Please consider becoming a dues-paying member to help us stay in this fight for you:
