About the speaker

The Very Rev. Tracey Lind is a retired Episcopal priest, author, city planner and community organizer whose ministry has included work for social and environmental justice, interfaith relations, sustainable urban development, arts, culture, and progressive theology. On Election Day 2016, she was diagnosed with early-stage Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD) prompting her unexpected retirement as Dean of Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral. 

While life has changed dramatically, the diagnosis hasn’t stopped Tracey from searching for new purpose and focusing on what she still has to give. In addition to preaching and teaching around the world, Tracey serves on the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) Think Tank and is a board member for the Episcopal Church Pension Fund and Judson Services Foundation. For over two years, Tracey has traveled with her spouse and care partner, Emily, throughout the United States and Europe sharing insights gained from a life complicated by dementia.
