Board of Trustees


President

Claire Sexton
(she/her)
Waco, TX
  • I've been on a long path to the UUWF, including Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, UU youth connections, and Southwest UU Women's conferences. I'm excited about moving into the future and working more & more toward being an anti-racist, feminist, LGBTQIA+ safe, anti-imperialist, intersectional organization.
  • My maternal grandmother was a single mom in the 50s and 60s who went back to school for her master's in education while her kids were young. It's hard for me to imagine doing that in 2022, let alone 60 years ago.
  • I love visual art and visual culture. Since early 2021 I've been on pledge to only buy used goods. I've been quite successful.

Treasurer

Rev. Kimberly Quinn Johnson
(she/her)

East Hampton, NY

  • One of my sheroes is Ella Baker, an organizer and an activist who worked with people to understand and use their power. She especially worked with young people to develop their leadership. Her work was largely uncelebrated at the time; she worked hard and faithfully without a lot of fanfare.
  • I’m excited about inviting a new generation of women into the work of the UUWF as we grow in our understanding go what it means to be a ‘women’s’ organization in the 21st century.
  • Two truths and a lie: I’m very shy. I can really cut a rug. I can’t ride a bike. 
Vice President – Funding Programs
Rev. Nancy Reid-McKee
(she/her)
Kirkland, WA
  • I am deeply committed to the work of justice and fairness in the world.
  • I have known about UUWF for years, and when I found time in my life to dedicate to the work I applied to become a Board member. I have been part of changing our perspective to be more expansive and inclusive, moving UUWF into innovative practices. I'm excited about the possibility for radical change that we are currently engaged in -- sociocracy, equity, gender expansiveness. All these challenge us to new ways of being a progressive organization.
  • When I get overwhelmed or depressed I find that spending time with another person helps get me out of my own head. I find the words and actions of others inspiring and motivating.

Members-at-Large



Rev. Isabel Call

(she/her)
Manhattan, KS
  • I'm a minister serving the UU Fellowship of Manhattan, Kansas. I'm originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, but I've also lived in the Midwest, Pacific Northwest, California, and Indonesia.
  • I carry a PhD in development economics in my back pocket, and I'm always in search of ways to strength relationships among people with shared values. This is the root of true, sustainable economic development. I believe covenantal communities like UU congregations can be the hub of a renewed economy as we show up with our gifts, learn how to interact in love, and regularly rededicate ourselves to sharing with the larger world.
  • I'm excited that I get to explore what it means to be a woman, what it means to be UU, and how to sink fully into these identities while reaching out into the world to obliterate patriarchy. The UUWF board is the coolest group I know, and I love that we're spreading our love into new relationships with people in other spaces.


Rev. Terry Cummings
(she/her)

West Hartford, CT

  • I've learned that I care more about other people succeeding than my own success. I am an empath and find great joy in my woodworking shop.
  • One of my sheroes is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- for defying the odds and succeeding in a political system that holds back women, especially non-white women, and for her courage in speaking truth to power, and for her far-left political views which I share.
  • I'm excited by the potential to make a difference in the lives of women and woman-identified people through our UU Faith.



Rev. Mandy Goheen
(she/her)

Chattanooga, TN

  • I have deep curiosity about the places where gender, race and class intersect and what it means to counter oppression in those spaces.
  • My this week Sheroe is Ursula Goodenough, who graduated with her Phd in Biology from Harvard in 1969. She is the author of "The Sacred Depths of Nature" and past president of Institute on Religion in an Age of Science. She continues to be one of the leading voices in religious naturalism today at the age of 79.
  • I am an adoptive mother of six and am  rooted in my identity as an Appalachian woman. When the world gets me down, I am re-energized by nature, music, car rides, my spouse, and my backyard chickens.

Staff


Director

Ann Wiesner
(she/her)

Minnetonka, MN

  • I started working with the UUWF in 2021 after a friend sent me a job posting and said she thought the position sounded like me. It turns out she was right. The work of the UUWF excites me because it's all about womena and liberation. 
  • For a while, I worked as a bartender in Las Vegas, and I loved it! I am social and love people, but I am not a small talk enthusiast. I prefer authenticity and connection over chit-chat. When the world gets me down, I turn to Gilligan's Island reruns, a phone call with my best friend, or reading beautiful writing.
  • My mom is one of my sheroes. At the age of 87 she bought an Apple Watch and at the age of 88 she snorkled in the Sea of Cortez. She never stops learning, exploring, and growing.  



Administrator

Dana Kader Robb
(she/her)
Milwaukee, WI
  • I've worked with the UUWF in one capacity or another since 2002. While I'm not a UU personally, I find that I'm often very connected to the UU women I've met and how they walk through life. Their passion -- and compassion -- touch me deeply and have affected my own beliefs and actions time and again.
  • Golda Meir is one of my sheroes. Family legend has it that she was friends with my grandmother when they were both little girls in Milwaukee. Her strength and hope, and her commitment to her people and public service, have always been meaningful to me.
  • I'm a sailor and find my greatest peace on the water. I'm invigorated by teaching others to sail, especially women over 50. I will never stop being delighted by their faces at the visceral "ohhhhh, now I get it" moment.

Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
