Earth Day and Just Transitions - 4.22.20

Artist Instagram info: @artisaright




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.

Call to Action

Save Ortega Park Murals - 4.24.20 - Saturday

Artist: @AdrianaLaArtista


"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

Santa Barbara Tenants Union is a community run, group-funded led by and for tenant volunteers. Our mission is to organize tenants councils to facilitate collective bargaining with landlords. We also run campaigns to educate tenants on legal rights and to increase the amount of affordable housing in Santa Barbara.

If you (or someone you know) have any problems with your current tenancy (increased fees, random "rennovations", harassment, worried about eviction, repairs taking too long), reach out to us and we can work with you on building an effective response. There are different tactics for each situation, so one of our tenant volunteer organizers will spend some time with you and your neighbors to work something out!

We make each other stronger, join the tenants union today!
