Forum Recording & Resources

Thank you to everyone who attended – and special thanks to 350 Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Public Library and our speakers, Irene Cook, Ana Rosa Rizo-Centino and Emily Williams for their time, energy and partnership – CEC and the League of Women Voters are so pleased that you joined us for this important discussion about continuing climate action during challenging times.

As I mentioned in my interview with the Santa Barbara Independent in April, we are experiencing more and more climate, public health and social justice emergencies. I have opposed using the term "social distancing" as a way to describe safe physical distance from the onset of COVID-19, because social connectivity is what is getting us through the current crises – and what will get us through the next.

Here are resources shared during the event that will help you stay engaged:
