Student Christian Movement
Outside of her family, the New England Student Christian Movement had the greatest impact on Barry’s understanding and practice of Christianity. Barry attended NESCM conferences and retreats starting her freshman year. She met similarly liberal, likeminded young Christians who were eager to connect Bible study to political and social problems, from racial inequality to poverty and hunger. It was through the SCM (and her family) that Barry had an awareness of growing problems of inequality in the world.
