Cindy Sheehan (she/her)
We are honored that Cindy Sheehan will speak at BFUU. The first time that she spoke publicly after her son was killed in Iraq, she had not planned to speak because she was grieving. Invited by the Social Justice Committee, she attended our service to support another Gold Star Mother whose words moved Cindy to speak impromptu. There was not a dry eye in the house! Retired attorney and long-term BFUU leader, Gene Sharee, was pictured on the news with a tear rolling down his deeply wrinkled cheek. Cindy learned the power of her voice and ran with it. What happened next? We are excited to hear her extraordinary, passionate story. Don’t miss it!
