The Samuel Lawrence Foundation strives to promote human interaction and encourage broader community access to science, education, and the arts.

About the Samuel Lawrence Foundation (SLF)

Founded in 2010, SLF fosters community engagement and participation in local and global issues. We bring attention to the catastrophic situation of 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste buried at the San Onofre State Beach.

We deliver community programming and support partner organizations and fiscal sponsors in order to strengthen community presence.


The San Onofre Situation


SLF directs attention to almost 2,000 tons of high-burn radioactive waste, improperly stranded at the now-shuttered San Onofre nuclear power plant. We bring  vigilant scientific inquiry and community education to this critical issue.

Working Together

SLF operates under the basic principles of justice, equity and inclusion to effect positive change and growth across the pillars of science, education and the arts. Our planet needs a peaceful and environmentally sustainable future.

We provide a forum for artists, academics, businesses, and community leaders to bring conversation and solutions to real problems.The Samuel Lawrence Foundation has sponsored international conferences and seminars to bring together public officials, academics, the community, and leading industry experts regarding nuclear safety. 

Keeping You Informed
