A North Coast environmental activist will be remembered at “A Celebration of the Life of Eco Heroine Judi Bari,” to be held from 2:30 to 6 p.m. March 25 at the Glaser Center, 547 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa.
Admission; $10 advance, $15 at the door.
Purchase tickets at www.judibari.eventbrite.com.
Presented by the Santa Rosa International Film Festival, the event includes a live performance by musician Darryl Cherney, Bari’s fellow leader in Earth First! — an organization which opposed the logging of old redwoods.
There also will be a screening of Cherney’s new documentary, “Who Bombed Judi Bari?”
On May 24, 1990, Bari was severely injured by a pipe bomb, which exploded in her car as she and Cherney traveled through Oakland on their way to Santa Cruz.
Bari and Cherney were originally suspected by police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation of carrying the bomb themselves.
A federal civil rights suit filed by Bari and Cherney won $4.4 million in damages from the police and FBI in 2002.
Bari died at age 47 of breast cancer on March 2, 1997.
