Cece Woods considers herself the “accidental activist”.
After spending her childhood on sands of Zuma Beach, Woods left the area, traveled the world and started a family. It was only a matter of time before she returned to the idyllic place that held so many wonderful memories from her youth and once she made the journey back to Malibu permanently, the passion to preserve it was ignited.
Woods became involved in local environmental and political activism at the urging of former husband Steve Woods, a resident for more than 4o years. Together, they were involved in many high profile environmental battles including the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project, Measure R, Measure W, and more. Together, they co-founded The Local Malibu, an influential online media publication.
The Local Malibu was the only publication to support Measure R and Measure W, both ballots winning the majority of the vote. The publication was also instrumental in seating three council members in the 2016 election, with a record number of voters turning out to the polls and the only publication to support the top vote getter.
Last year, Cece Woods broke multiple global stories including the Malibu Creek State Park shootings and is considered by major news media as a trusted authority on Malibu. Woods also took the lead with board members Tricia Small and Jessica Steindorff during the Woolsey Fire to facilitate disaster relief and update daily communication to residents via social media. Cece Woods and Tricia Small along with current Advisory Board Members Sabine Hazan, Linda Sales, Jessica Steindorff, Susan Saul, Tracy Leworthy are continuing their efforts started during the Woolsey Fire to be a part of this platform, Malibu90265.org empowering the community to be organized, self-sustaining and demand change in local government.
