Full name: Julica Hermann de la Fuente
Julica Hermann de la Fuente served as the coordinator of the racism audit for the Commission on Institutional Change. She is a UU Lay Community Minister and a candidate for UU ministry. In addition to working for the Commission, Julica offers consulting and coaching on anti-racism to religious professionals and lay leaders across our denomination.
Julica holds an MA in Leadership Studies from Meadville Lombard Theological School, an MSW and an ABD in Sociology from the University of Michigan, and two coaching certifications. She is delighted 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.
