BETTY JEANNE RUETERS-WARD "met Catalyst while serving as a national youth organizer for Young Religious Unitarian Universalists, where she was first politicized around race in the late 1990's. Betty Jeanne is a member of Groundwork, a faith-based, multigenerational, multiracial collective of anti-racism trainer/organizers; she has led courses on community organizing, sociology, youth ministry, and sexuality education at colleges and seminaries. While studying Religious Leadership for Social Change at Starr King School for the Ministry, Betty Jeanne created a series of "theological zines" exploring mental health and personal sustainability in social movements. Also while in seminary, Betty Jeanne interned with Catalyst and served on the newly-launched Fundraising Team and Anne Braden Program Leadership Team, coordinating the program's mentor circle. Leading up to the 2008 elections, she organized Bay area clergy to mobilize progressive voters and build the religious/spiritual left. Betty Jeanne can also be found baking fruit tortes, and corresponding with her awesome family in Germany." [1]
