Introducing DEIB’s Consultant Julica Hermann de la Fuente

Anti-racism consultant Julica Hermann de la Fuente (she/ella) has asked by the DEIB (UUFR’s Racial Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Becoming committee) to lead a Zoom meeting to help us become a more racially diverse and inclusive community. The Zoom session is open to all UUFR members and friends on Saturday, April 30th, beginning at 10:00 am.

Julica was born and raised in Mexico City. She has followed her calling to do anti-racism work in the United States for more than two decades, completing her Lay Community Ministry degree at Meadville Lombard Theological School and her MSW from the University of Michigan. She currently serves as the Director of Liberation and Transformation Ministries at the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis.

Julica is an anti-racism/anti-oppression educator and trainer in a variety of capacities, currently consulting with Unitarian Universalist congregations across the country. She is especially keen on supporting UUs in our multicultural competency development, and in helping congregations become more actively anti-racist in organizational practices. In her own words, she wants to help us “get to the place where we can close the gap between what we say and what we do” to create more inclusive congregations.
