From Margaret Fuller and the suffragists in the 19th Century to Juliet Christian-Smith in the 21st Century, UU women have been advocates for change. We will celebrate the 98th year of women winning the right to vote on August 26, 1920, and explore avenues for advocacy today on the local and national levels. Kat Braeman is organizing this service which will include the theatre group’s presentation of “Failure Is Impossible,” Susan Anthony’s call to action.
Kat Braeman is the Board Secretary and a long-time UU. She ran for a seat in the U.S. Congress in Nebraska in 1972 as an advocate for women and children. She went to law school and then moved to Washington, DC, for a 30-year career in the federal government. She retired as an Administrative Judge. She moved to the Bay Area as her daughter Elizabeth Kristen is a legal advocate and the Director of Gender Equity & LGBT Rights Program with Legal Aid at Work in San Francisco.
