MonaLisa Wallace, Esq., local San Francisco activist, attorney and author, describes the connection between Earth Day and the Santa Barbara Oil Spill, 50 years ago, remembered to be one of history’s largest known oil spills. That devastating environmental disaster is thought to have sparked the plan for the first Earth Day celebrated in 1970. Combining the ‘teach in’ aspect of grassroots organizing with the reality of industrial impact on the environment, Earth Day was born like a phoenix from the ashes to bring people together around our common goal to protect and enjoy our natural environment through education.
