Welcome Pastor Danny Givens, MUUSJA Statewide Organizer!
We are thrilled to announce that Pastor Danny Givens, Jr. has accepted our offer to become MUUSJA's half-time Statewide Organizer, starting on August 21.
Many of you will know Pastor Danny from his public role as an organizer with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis over the past several years; you have also probably seen him speak and teach in one of our local UU congregations or interfaith gatherings. He brings a depth of experience in both faith-based leadership and community organizing, and he already has strong relationships with our UU congregations, many of our interfaith partners, and powerful organizers and entities working for justice in Minnesota. He is warm, thoughtful, inspiring, faithful, strategic, and deeply committed to MUUSJA's mission of building a more just and loving world. He has devoted his life and his heart to healing the profound brokenness caused by racism and and all other forms of injustice, and he wields his faith and his ministry as tools for building new and visionary ways of embodying collective liberation. We are blessed that he has enthusiastically agreed to bring his gifts to the service of MUUSJA.
