The Reverend Leslie Takahashi Morris is co-minister at the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Leslie was a founding member of the Thomas Jefferson District Anti-Racism Transformation Team, was on the Eno River UU Fellowship congregational team, and served as moderator for All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Durham, NC, an intentionally multicultural anti-racist congregation. Her consultative work has included documenting resources for multiracial families within the UUA and she helped host a conference for multiracial families as part of the TJD Anti-Racism Conference in 2006. Ordained in 2004, she has been active in efforts to involve congregations in advocacy for the rights of bisexual, lesbian, gay and transgendered people. She helped organize the UU response to a constitutional marriage amendment banning same-sex partnerships or marriages when this issue arose in Virginia and supported congregational efforts in California. Since 2005 she and Chip Roush and Leon Spencer have been working on a book examining the UUA’s efforts to address racism since the 1992 General Assembly in Calgary passed a resolution calling for the UUA to be racially and culturally diverse. As part of this work, she has developed a passion for supporting youth of color/Latina/o/Hispanic youth. The book is slated to be published this fall by Skinner House. She has served on the steering committees for the Asian Pacific Islander Caucus of DRUUMM and as part of the Multi-racial Caucus. She currently serves as vice-president of DRUUMM and on the UUA’s Diversity of Ministry Team.
