The Ghostlight Project, West Of Lenin says
On January 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project. Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone--regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

January 19th is a moment of gathering within a larger resistance to intolerance at all levels. We aim to create brave spaces that will serve as lights in the coming years. We aim to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities. This is not a substitution for protests or direct action, but rather a pledge for continued vigilance and increased advocacy.

Join us at West of Lenin to be a part of our pledge. All participants are encouraged to bring a light source: a flashlight, lantern, phone, etc. Please arrive early, as the event will begin promptly at 5:30pm.
