It is with great sadness that we share the news of the death yesterday of Carolyn Cartland, who was a founder and former President of EqUUal Access. Carolyn helped to launch and to shape this organization. While she had not been active nationally with EqUUal Access recently, she was available to share her insights and perspective with the Board. We will miss her.
Carolyn’s advocacy for Unitarian Universalists with disabilities long predates the founding of EqUUal Access, including service on the UUA’s Accessibility Committee and Journey Toward Wholeness Transformation Committee. And it continued after she left our Board, as she supported the Team currently bringing the Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry (AIM) Program to her congregation. A social worker by profession, Carolyn’s advocacy was not limited to the world of Unitarian Universalism!
There will be a memorial service for Carolyn on Wednesday, September 7, at 11 a.m., at the Unitarian Society of Hartford, CT.
We invite you to share your remembrances of Carolyn on our Facebook page, by emailing EqUUalAccess@gmail.com, or as comments here.
