CHICAGO — The Deaconess Community of the ELCA would like to extend thanks to Sister Clare Josef-Maier of our community.

She has served on the task force for the development of a social statement on “Women & Justice” since 2012.

After a feedback period of their Faith, Sexism, and Justice congregational study, the task force now enters the stage of composing the initial draft of the social statement.

This draft is currently slated to be released the public for a hearing period on November 15.

Thank you for your work for gender justice, Sister Clare!
