Ceil Sorenson

One of the most beloved Greens in Los Angeles, Ceil Sorenson, has tragically suffered a heart attack upon finding her husband of many decades had passed in his sleep. She is in intensive care.

Ceil, who must be in her eighties, is a tireless activist. If there’s a demo or event in LA, she is there, festooned with buttons, and always cheerful. She was one of the original Greens in Los Angeles.

Last year she made the front page of the LA Times as she, wearing a Peace banner, was escorted by police out of the City Council chambers as they were debating an antiwar resolution.

She has countless friends who will be there for her now.
