Mothers for Peace Wins Award


The San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace was awarded a grant of $7,000 by the Fund for Santa Barbara. The purpose of the grant is to help pay for the services of an expert witness in support of Mothers for Peace in Defense of Downwind Communities, a legal challenge of Pacific Gas and Electric Company's application to extend the operating licenses of the two reactors at Diablo Canyon to the years 2044/2045. The Fund for Santa Barbara is a nonprofit community foundation dedicated to addressing the root causes of social, economic, environmental and political challenges in Santa Barbara County.
