  • I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. Seafood and Southern politics are very dear to my identity!
  • When the world gets me down, music is my way to pick up. Music is great when I feel the need to get away from my current reality while reclaiming the energy needed for an extra boost!
  • What excites me most about UUWF's work is the space it creates to connect and resonate with such a large group of diverse and dynamic women. I am a ferocious feminist writer and will do anything in support of women, reproductive freedom, and gender equality. Being involved with the UUWF provides great opportunities to reflect on the intersectionalities of our identities and foster a stronger sense of community amongst each other.

  • I've worked with the UUWF in one capacity or another since 2002. While I'm not a UU personally, I find that I'm often very connected to the UU women I've met and how they walk through life. Their passion -- and compassion -- touch me deeply and have affected my own beliefs and actions time and again.
  • Golda Meir is one of my sheroes. Family legend has it that she was friends with my grandmother when they were both little girls in Milwaukee. Her strength and hope, and her commitment to her people and public service, have always been meaningful to me.
  • I'm a sailor and find my greatest peace on the water. I'm invigorated by teaching others to sail, especially women over 50. I will never stop being delighted by their faces at the visceral "ohhhhh, now I get it" moment.

  • I love to collaborate. It's such a joy to work with people and build something from everyone's ideas. I think that's what led me to liberation work because of how collaborative it is -- we have to work together to get to where we are going. This is my dream job, and I still can't believe I get to create programming that centers women and femmes. The direction we're going excites me, and I'm incredibly thankful every day to get up and do this work in a space that lets me bring my religious values with me.
  • My biggest shero is probably Angela Davis. Her writings on abolition work and dismantling the prison-industrial system is a big part of how I see the world and live my own life from day to day.
  • One thing that helps me center myself again is music and dancing. Moving my body or singing a song helps me to find the joy in life.

  • I started working with the UUWF in 2021 after a friend sent me a job posting and said she thought the position sounded like me. It turns out she was right. The work of the UUWF excites me because it's all about womena and liberation. 
  • For a while, I worked as a bartender in Las Vegas, and I loved it! I am social and love people, but I am not a small talk enthusiast. I prefer authenticity and connection over chit-chat. When the world gets me down, I turn to Gilligan's Island reruns, a phone call with my best friend, or reading beautiful writing.
  • My mom is one of my sheroes. At the age of 87 she bought an Apple Watch and at the age of 88 she snorkled in the Sea of Cortez. She never stops learning, exploring, and growing.

  • I have deep curiosity about the places where gender, race and class intersect and what it means to counter oppression in those spaces.
  • My this week Sheroe is Ursula Goodenough, who graduated with her Phd in Biology from Harvard in 1969. She is the author of "The Sacred Depths of Nature" and past president of Institute on Religion in an Age of Science. She continues to be one of the leading voices in religious naturalism today at the age of 79.
  • I am an adoptive mother of six and am rooted in my identity as an Appalachian woman. When the world gets me down, I am re-energized by nature, music, car rides, my spouse, and my backyard chickens.

East Hampton, NY

  • I first learned of the UUWF when I applied for the Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley scholarship for women of color pursuing credentialed UU Leadership. I’m excited about inviting a new generation of women into the work of the UUWF as we grow in our understanding go what it means to be a ‘women’s’ organization in the 21st century.
  • One of my sheroes is Ella Baker, an organizer and an activist who worked with people to understand and use their power. She especially worked with young people to develop their leadership. Her work was largely uncelebrated at the time; she worked hard and faithfully without a lot of fanfare.
  • Two Truths and a Lie:  I’m very shy. I can really cut a rug. I can’t ride a bike.
Rev. Denise L. Graves
New Orleans, LA

  • I am a womanist committed to the shalom/peace in self, with others, and with the universe utilizing Peace Ministry LLC & Institute as a medium. I am a community pastor, culture bearer, educator, healer, author, consultant, parent and friend.
  • My sheroes include Paula Giddings, bell hooks, presidential candidate Shirley Chisolm, Rep. Barbara Jordon, Dr. Gloria Scott, and Pixie Lighthorse.
  • I love culture exploration and immersion, roller skating, preaching, and playing board games. At one point in life I wanted to sing like Diana Ross.
