Lights Out (insert your city's name here)

After a fruitful Steering Committee meeting yesterday, we’re moving full-steam ahead. We’ve got a new office space, and are about to print posters, brochures, and handouts. Keep an eye out for our info in storefronts and restaurants. Special thanks to Nick Rubenstein and Mabel Liang for all their amazing design work!

Pete’s Tavern has graciously offered their space for us to host a fundraiser. Please join us there from 5-8pm on September 13, and contribute to a great cause!

We’re getting noticed on the national level! We were featured in the August 29, 2007 newsletter.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the folks around the world who have expressed interest in starting a Lights Out movement in their own cities. We truly appreciate your support! Right now, we need to focus our energy on LOSF, but would like to move on to other cities after out project is done. It’s a short time frame for this year, but please turn your lights out on Oct. 20 in solidarity. We have had a lot of success with Lights Out San Francisco, and our hope is to move the event national with Lights Out America. Tentatively we are looking at March for a national event. Sign up for the SF event and we will keep you informed about the national effort and will work with you on coordinating your area. Please stay tuned to our website and this blog for more information.
