In Thanksgiving for the Life of Lynice Williams

Lynice Williams died this weekend. Too soon by any measure.

She was one of this state’s great advocates for and organizers of people of low income and low wealth. Among other things, she was executive director of North Carolina Fair Share for 24 years and was a member of the Governing Board of the North Carolina Council of Churches at the time of her passing. These words about her on Progressive Pulse reflect the depth of her commitment to true justice for all.

How she will be missed!

–George Reed, Executive Director

Aleta Payne, Deputy Executive Director

Along with coordinating the Council's fundraising, my work includes both external and internal communications, working with others on our staff to make sure their good work is visible and available. I have also been actively involved in our work on food as a social justice issue.

My family and I live in Cary where we are very involved with our church and the other activities and interests of our three sons. When there's spare time, I read, anything from entertainment magazines to histories, and enjoy dinner out with my "mom" friends.
