Alex Sherwood serves his faith as the youth and young adults program associate at the UUA. A lifelong UU and Texan, he has lived and seen some of the ways youth and emerging adults are shaped by our faith, and how for many, Unitarian Universalism is held close as a home long after bridging into adulthood. Alex is excited to bring his experiences as an activist and organizer to the Unitarian Universalist Association to help foster leadership, build community, and provide tools for radical youth and young adult advocacy. He sees UUism as a faith whose strength comes from the mission of opposing systems of oppression around the world. When he isn’t doing the work, Alex can be found enjoying film, listening to audiobooks, or just hanging out with his two dogs, Ebony and Yoda.
