Julica Hermann de la Fuente is a Lay Community Minister and a candidate for UU ministry. Prior to answering her ministerial call, Julica had been a social justice educator and a life coach. In addition to an MA in Leadership Studies from Meadville Lombard Theological School, she also holds an MSW and an ABD in Sociology from the University of Michigan, and two coaching certifications. She is also privileged to serve on the Beloved Conversations Retreat Leader Team and as a Program Leader for the UU College of Social Justice.
Born and bred in Mexico, Julica often finds herself living on the bridges between multiple identities: bicultural, bisexual, bilingual. She also identifies as a temporarily able-bodied, cisgender, upper middle-class, trauma survivor, immigrant, white Latina, and feels it is a privilege to leverage the complexity of these identities and the intersections thereof in the service of social justice education and anti-racism.
