DarkSky Advocates

Thousands of volunteer DarkSky Advocates make up the global movement against light pollution. Advocates use their specialties, skills, and passions to advocate for night sky protection in their communities and beyond.

DarkSky Delegates

Delegates are Advocates who have agreed to be a local point of contact for others seeking to get involved or learn more about night sky protection. Delegates have added responsibilities and are the go-to mentors and authorities for their regions.

”Finding the Advocate Network made all the difference in the world to me. It is amazing how many people worldwide are working to rid the globe of poor lighting.”

–Eileen Kragie, DarkSky Advocate, U.S.A.
