Vice President, Board of Directors, Clara Barton District of the UUA 2013–2016
Clara Barton District has been in existence since 2000, when Central Mass District and Connecticut Valley District merged. Universalist, Clara Barton, was born within our borders in North Oxford, Ma., on Christmas Day in 1821, and delegates at the official merger meeting chose to name our new District in her honor! We are one of the 19 Districts in the US that comprise the Unitarian Universalist Association.
Geographically, we encompass central and western Massachusetts, and all but the southwest corner of Connecticut. Numerically, we have 64 member congregations and one newly emerging congregation. At last count, we had 7041 adult members among our congregations.

Founder of CUREJ
Jeanne founded "Greater Hartford UU's Against Racism" (GHUUAR), which later became the interfaith coalition: 'Congregations United for Race Equality and Justice' (CUREJ). CUREJ crosses socioeconomic, theological and racial classifications to work on issues of racial justice. The coalition is made up of the three Unitarian Universalist Congregations located in the Hartford, CT area, an A.M.E. Church, and a Baptist Church.
No matter what one's faith, the purpose of religion must be to empower each person to live their faith values in ways that heal the world. By this process, the meaning of life is found.
