2020 Louise Branscomb Barrier Breaker Award presented by COSROW

In 1990 the United Methodist Women of the North Alabama Conference established the Louise Branscomb Barrier Breaker Award as a way for the Conference to annually recognize a United Methodist willing to risk and stand up for the rights of women and ethnic minority persons. Each year the Conference Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) continues to recognize these "barrier breakers" through this award.

North Alabama United Methodists are invited to nominate those who exhibit these characteristics each spring.
