Crowne Plaza -- Salon B
RSVP now no charge

The 2018 Ministry to Women Award is being given this year to Rev. Dr. Deborah Pope-Lance and Rev. Gail Seavey in recognition of their prophetic persistence over the years that has kept the issue of clergy sexual misconduct within Unitarian Universalism within our public consciousness. They both have named and educated on the existence of  sexual harassment and abuse in our faith communities, and helped develop safe congregation practices.
