Update 12/8/22: The Biden administration has now appealed Judge Sullivan's ruling, backtracking yet again on their promises to protect asylum rights. While the outcome of the litigation is not yet clear, the administration's decision increases the odds that Title 42 will remain in effect past its currently-scheduled end date.

Challenging Injustice, Advancing Human Rights

Rev. Jacqueline Brett

Board Member

Rev. Jacqueline Brett is Lead Minister of the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Durham, North Carolina. Her ministry is devoted to making a transformative and equitable difference in the world by taking an active stand for racial equity and collective liberation both within and beyond the congregation’s walls. Rev. Brett received an M.Div. and MALS from Meadville Lombard Theological School where she was also a member of the Board of Trustees. She currently serves on the UUA’s Ministerial Fellowship Committee (MFC) and is a member of its Executive Team and a panel chair. Locally she serves on the strategy team and as co-chair of the clergy caucus for Durham Congregations, Associations and Neighborhoods (CAN), a multi-faith coalition of congregations, associations, and neighborhoods organizing to address local issues of justice and equity for the city’s most marginalized communities.

Rev. Brett hails from Brooklyn, NY and has two adult sons. She finds balance through her meditation practice, by walking at least five miles a day, and whenever possible, gathering with friends to share a good meal and experiences of art, live music, dance, and theater.
