Selma Rubin was the matriarch of progressive social action in Santa Barbara. She helped create some of the leading organizations that are the backbone of environmental and social justice activism in our region: Community Environmental council, Environmental Defense Fund, SB County Action Network, Pueblo and she served on the boards of a wide range of organizations and institutions. She died on March 9 at age 97. Thursday May 3 there will be a community memorial to celebrate her life. It's at B'nai B'rith Temple at 4 PM. All who knew Selma are welcome.
Tomorrow evening I'll do a radio show for Selma playing songs that relate to her life and legacy and that help us reflect on her passing. You can hear a selection of some of the songs I'm using by going here: http://8tracks.com/rflacks/untitled-mix.
