The board and staff of Interfaith Alliance mourn the passing of the Rt. Rev. Jane Holmes Dixon. She served as past chair of the Interfaith Alliance Board of Directors, senior advisor to the organization for interreligious relations, and was the recipient of our 2011 Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom award in recognition of her lifetime of ministry and outreach aimed at making all feel welcome and respected. This compassionate and courageous woman embodied the values of Interfaith Alliance and she will be missed, but never forgotten.
