Due to a high volume of SSL and Hort applications, initial and comprehensive review timeframes are currently extended by 10 days each. Beginning April 11, review priority will be given to applications updating V5.0 products to V5.1, which may also impact review timeframes for all other SSL application types. Click here for more details about SSL application review timeframes, and here for more details about Hort review timeframes. Thank you for your understanding!

LightJustice.org is a new forum for lighting professionals to share information, ideas, and experience about lighting justice issues, opportunities, and actions, but it is accessible to everyone. “Light Justice” is the practice of planning, designing, implementing, and investing in good lighting for historically neglected neighborhoods through a process of stakeholder engagement and community supported “placemaking” with light.

LightJustice.org is rooted in the ongoing conversation between lighting designers Edward Bartholomew and Mark Loeffler about their mutual concern for lighting quality and inequality, especially in the public realm. Well-designed, well-maintained lighting is a signifier of prosperity and privilege that is seldom available to under-resourced communities.

Since 2020, Edward and Mark have given presentations and written articles exploring the intersection of lighting with social and environmental justice, the discriminatory impacts of bad lighting, and opportunities for the lighting industry to overcome these inequities.

In early 2022, lighting designer Lya Osborn joined them to help start LightJustice.org as a resource for planners, designers, educators, policy makers, and community groups. They welcome your participation. Questions and suggestions can currently be provided by reaching out to the curators at info@lightjustice.org.
