Lorrie Douglas, President of The Board of Trustees

UUFCC is my spiritual home and “like-minded”community. Having been an active member of UUFCC since 2015,  I have enjoyed participating in the Social Justice, Immigration Justice, Caring, and Worship Associate Committees. I also delight in being a member of the UUFCC Choir, and a frequent participant in the annual Racial Monologues presentations.
I have had the opportunity to be a UUFCC delegate to two UUA General Assemblies, and to attend a European UU Conference in 2000 when I was a member of the Paris UU congregation.
My background is in Social Work & Business Administration; including many years of non-profit management. I am also a Board member of the Nicaragua Project of Capital to Bridge the Divide.

Ted Zawistowski, Vice President of The Board of Trustees

I came to UUFCC in 2009.  I joined the Social Justice Committee and soon was elected chair.  The next years were busy with many activities including the Racial Justice Committee, developing UUFCC vision and mission statements, reaching into the community and supporting organizations such as the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the Homeless Coalition and the NAACP, developing the Peace Initiative speakers series, Peace Garden and Peace Pole, and the new Immigration Justice Committee work to assist people learning English and applying for US citizenship.  I also attended the UUA General Assembly in Arizona.  On occasion I give talks during the Sunday service, have done yard work and collect Second Helpings.
