to support housing for the poor, rational urban and regional planning,
preservation of farmland and the creation of parks and open space. A new
biography explores Erskine’s life and career, including her
motivations, inspirations and achievements as one of the Bay Area’s
foremost civic and environmental activists in an era when few women held
similar roles. With author Janet B. Thiessen. Co-sponsored by
Friends of Dorothy Erskine and Greenbelt Alliance."
