What is Light Justice?
Thoughtfully designed and regularly maintained lighting is too often a signifier of prosperity. Under-resourced communities frequently endure inappropriate and even oppressive lighting, which in turn is detrimental to their well-being.
The lighting profession has both the obligation and opportunity to improve the visual experience of communities which historically have not been afforded adequate lighting attention and technology. Recognition of this responsibility, and curiosity around how lighting can contribute to greater social and environmental equity, is where light justice begins.
