#JustTransitionsAreIntersectional

We launch Earth Day to May Day by uplifting that our liberation is interconnected, and the demand for Abolition and a Just Transition. Pushing for a healthy ecosystem requires a critical & intersectional movement.

We start with a call to action for several events taking place this weekend for folks to support in Santa Barbara.

Today, lets use the momentum for systemic change that Earth Day in Santa Barbara represents in the fight for a Just Transition and a Green New Deal. Save the date for the SB County Grassroots Green New Deal Junta Grande on Saturday May 15th at noon.

Invest in Community Safety- 4.23.20 - Friday

From @SURJSB

On Tuesday, April 6th, 2021, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution declaring racism a public health crisis. The County’s public safety budget must reflect this resolution and its accompanying commitment to create changes that directly address systemic racism and its harmful outcomes.

Call to Action

Save Ortega Park Murals - 4.24.20 - Saturday

Artist: @AdrianaLaArtista

@OneCommunitySB

"The murals in Ortega Park have been a part of the Eastside community for 42 years. Recently, the City of Santa Barbara has decided to redesign and remodel Ortega Park to include the demolition of the existing murals. Many of the murals qualify as historically significant, and all of them are significant to the community as they reflect our history and culture.

Our goal is to bring awareness and engage community members to participate in the efforts to save the murals."

Call to Action

We Keep Us Safe - 4.25.20 - Sunday

@ElCentro

"Join a coalition of community organizations at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse this Sunday, April 25, to mourn those taken from us far too soon and to call for an end to rampant police and state violence at the local, regional, and national levels. Together we affirm that the police do not stand in opposition to the violence we experience. They are violence."
