Better Together: A Panel Discussion

April 21, 2021 - 3:00pm

Join UCM Sustainability in a discussion with the producer, Nancy Black, and director, Isaac Hernandez, of the film, "Better Together"!

Film 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 fo the first interdisciplinary Envrionmental Studies porgrams. 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.
