The Green Light Ghost Light Project (GLGLP) is dedicated to highlighting the voices of our local Veteran community. It is a combination of the “Greenlight a Vet” initiative, in which communities light a green light to show support for veterans, and the Ghost Light Project, in which theaters leave a light on to signal that the theater is a safe space for all.

Past Events

Memorial Day Reflection Walk – May 2021

The GLGLP was launched in May 2021 with a Memorial Day Reflection Walk which featured stories and reflections of the families of the “Rhode Island Nine”, the nine Rhode Island Marines who lost their lives during the Marine Barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon on October 23, 1983. The walk began at Trinity Rep, continued with stories along Westminster St, ending at the new Beirut Memorial on Dyer St.
