2013 Allies for Justice Honorees Sarah Farley and Betty Tisel
Betty Tisel and Sarah Farley are organizing the choir for social justice-both literally and figuratively. Long-time Headwaters supporters, their recent work to promote marriage equality and protect voter rights embodies the heart and soul of what it means to be donor activists and good neighbors. That includes active engagement on a broad range of issues, from LGBTQ rights to global climate change to nurturing the rebirth of MN Community Sings. With commitment, ingenuity and boundless energy, Sarah and Betty are building community and advancing social justice in our state.
