Love Your Neighbor
Advocates Share Their Support for the Local Immigrant Community Through Art
Santa Barbara, CA. Friday, Feb 26 - Sun, Mar 14, 2021
The Interfaith Sanctuary Alliance (ISA) of Santa Barbara is hosting a “Love Your Neighbor” week in solidarity with our local immigrant neighbors. To help spread awareness about the week and share the stories of our immigrant neighbors, the ISA has commissioned a series of “Love Your Neighbor” art posters that will be displayed around town. At the bottom of each poster is a QR Code that links to a “Hear Our Voices” page sharing audio and video recordings of personal stories from members of our local immigrant community.

Burger Week 2021 presented by SB Independent
March 11 - March 17
Santa Barbara Independent first launched Burger Week in 2017 as a way to encourage readers to go out and directly support Santa Barbara restaurants. Burger Week continued on in 2018 and 2019. We made the decision to skip 2020 based on restaurant restrictions. Even though we are very much still living in that reality, based on a survey of past Burger Week participating restaurants, we have decided to fire up the grills for 2021.
