Julia Paradine-Rice, President of the Michigan Conference UMW, announced on September 9, “After much consideration, the 3rd Annual Celebration of the United Methodist Women of the Michigan Conference is going virtual. Our Leadership Team felt it was best to avoid state-wide travel to accommodate a live event with the current pandemic statistics.”

Emily Jones, UMW Executive for Racial Justice is the keynote speaker. Jones is the executive for racial justice at National United Methodist Women. She leads the UMW’s campaign to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Prior to her current position, Jones served as the director and lead organizer for the Rhode Island Interfaith Coalition to Reduce Poverty.
