Hello and welcome to Lights Out America.

As many of you know, we started with a city-wide lights out event in San Francisco on October 20th. It was an amazing success in large part due to your support. Thank you.

That was just the beginning. People across the country continue to write to ask how they can get involved. So we launched Lights Out America to harness that enthusiasm and to keep the momentum going. We chose March 29th for our Lights Out America event to coincide with the second annual "Earth Hour" organized by our friends from Sydney, Australia. As it turns out, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is planning to bring Earth Hour to the United States on that same date, March 29th. So, rather than launch a separate Lights Out America event, we've chosen to support WWF to make Earth Hour a success.

As a first step to support Earth Hour, we created a online discussion forum where you can take the movement forward, share ideas, get involved, and ask questions. Please keep in mind, this is a un-moderated group-meaning it's there for you to exchange ideas and coordinate. We'll do our best to keep up with all the questions. You should also feel free to contact the WWF directly, as they are taking the lead on the event going forward:

In the meantime here in San Francisco, we're working on a new campaign with the goal of turning off non-essential lights in buildings downtown at night. It's not officially launched yet, but please check back with us at Lights Out San Francisco for more details.
