Julica Hermann de la Fuente (she/ella) serves as the Director of Liberation and Transformation Ministries at the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis, and is currently completing her path toward ordination. Born and raised in Mexico City, she first became committed to social justice when she came to the United States for college. Since then, Julica has been an anti-racism/anti-oppression educator and trainer in a variety of capacities over the past two decades.
In addition to a Lay Community Ministry degree from Meadville Lombard, Julica also holds an MSW from the University of Michigan and is certified as a master life coach. When not on shift for the resistance, you will find Julica playing with fabric, making costumes for her two children Aliana and Skyler, looking for more excuses to frost fancy cakes, and reading optimistic sci-fi and fantasy possibilities of a just and equitable universe.
