In 2016, the Board of Directors established the Barbara Santee Emerging Leader Award to recognize those who will be among the next generation of community leaders addressing issues of importance to the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance. ┬áThis award was designed to honor the legacy of Barbara Santee, a woman who has spent her whole life being among the first to lead the way on a variety of issues ranging from assisting with the creation of an “underground railroad” transporting women seeking safe abortions in the days before Roe v. Wade to organizing the most highly attended TIA event: an evening with Mikey Wienstein, Founder and President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

Recipients:

2016 – Jennie Wachowski-Estes, Executive Director, United Campus Ministry at the University of Tulsa
