In celebration of Earth Day, join us for a discussion with producer Nancy Black, director Isaac Hernandez and other cast members from the film, "Better Together".


Synopsis: The 1969 Union Oil blowout mobilized the Santa Barbara community to fight for the environment, inspiring the creation of many nonprofit organizations, Earth Day, the Environmental Protection Agency and one of the first interdisciplinary Environmental Studies programs.


The legacy of the oil spill continues to inform the citizens, who have come together over the years to protect the air and water, preserve open spaces and for each other, as to when 3,000 volunteers joined the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade to dig mud from homes after the deadly 2018 debris flow. As the world faces a global climate disruption, the community needs to come together as never before. 


How to Watch the Film: Information provided after registration.


Join the panel discussion Wednesday, April 21st at 3 PM PST via Zoom.
