Philanthropist, poet, race horse breeder, collector of contemporary art, and nationally infamous homeless activist ... these have been a few of Kit Tremaine's lives. Tremaine grew up in New Orleans to be a great beauty and Queen of Mardi Gras. But there was always another side to Tremaine, a side that donated time and money to so many liberal causes that her conservative friends called her a communist. She has given millions of dollars to a multitude of social projects. She has been instrumental in providing legal, medical, and counseling services for the poor, as well as founding and funding The Sunflower Foundation. In 1986 she appeared in Time magaizne after joining homeless activists in a successful drive to soften a Santa Barbara ordinance that criminalized sleep in public places.
During her career, Tremaine donated about $30 million to Democratic political candidates and causes. She campaigned against the Vietnam War in the 1960s, standing in silent protest once a week outside the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Tremaine then created the Sunflower Foundation, which provided financial support to 1,000 organizations that work for Native American betterment, civil rights, peace, housing reform and environmental, labour and women's issues.
As an author and poet, she published such works as "The Butterfly Rises," "The Guest in the Garden" and "Fragments: My Path Through the 20th Century."

“I continued to demonstrate against the Vietnam War in front of the Santa Barbara Art Museum. Our protest consisted of a silent vigil for the hour noon and one.”
“Love is the universal answer no matter what the question, and that we must seek to manifest it in all possible ways.”
