From “Don’t Say Gay” bills to the swath of laws criminalizing gender affirming and abortion-related care, attacks on bodily autonomy in the US are escalating at an alarming pace. And, this nation has always targeted certain kinds of bodies as less worthy of protection and freedom than others. What does our UU tradition offer us as an antidote to toxic theologies of coercion and control that are fueling the current culture wars? Join us for a conversation about intersectionality, radical spiritual imagination, and the liberation of all our sacred bodies. Rev. Ashley will be with us via Zoom.
The Rev. Ashley Horan serves as the Organizing Strategy Director at the UUA, where she leads the team that holds all the outward facing justice work of the Association under the banner of Side With Love and its related campaigns, UU the Vote, Create Climate Justice, Love Resists, and UPLIFT Action. Prior to her work at the UUA, Ashley was the Executive Director of the MN UU Social Justice Alliance, and the Curriculum Developer for Beloved Conversations. She lives in Minneapolis with her partner, the Rev. Karen Hutt, and their two youngest children–Aspen, 7, and Eden, 2.
