PEACE BUILDER BIOGRAPHY
I am the Senior Minister of Middle Collegiate Church in New York City, the first Black person and woman to hold my position at this 375+ year-old church. I’m married to my wonderful husband John, and have two incredible grandchildren—Ophelia and Octavius—who keep the love beating in my heart.
DAILY PEACE ACTION
Rewrite any US foundational document—the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg address, whatever speaks to you—giving it new words amid an old form to redirect us all toward justice. Then, share that artistic offering with the people in your life and have hard conversations about the work we need to do.
