The UUWF is committed to addressing gender bias and protecting women. Join us for each session in our three-part series as we listen to experts discuss how to keep ourselves and our community safe.
In our first panel, we’ll hear from three non-binary/gender-expansive religious professionals.
Dandelion Keiyan Prinsloo (they/them): Dandelion is a Kenyan-American spiritual coach and justice organizer from so-called Atlanta, GA. After studying geology at Georgia State University, they continued their education with a Master's of Science in resilient and sustainable community planning. Dandelion survives and thrives as an Afroindigenous person in a world made oppositional to their existence by committing time towards community art projects at their favorite skatepark, The Village ATL, writing poetry, cooking big ole meals for their loved ones, and listening to hours upon hours of audiobooks. Dandelion enjoys teaching 5-6th graders RE at their home congregation, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta, and has been a young voice of leadership within the Unitarian Universalist faith as a member of the UUs for Divestment Caucus.
Rev. Leela Sinha (ze/zim/zir): Leela Sinha is a brown, queer, genderqueer, entrepreneurial community minister with a theology of pleasure and a habit of transformative mischief. In zir work, ze offers leadership coaching, training, and keynotes, working with leaders and organizations to develop and delight in the power and intensity we have, and to use that power for good. Zir book, "You're Not Too Much" came out in 2016. Ze has been a UU all zir life, and lives and works in the Bay Area. Check out zir’s work with zir Sinha Intensive/Expansive Framework, work supporting teams and individuals working together, and zir podcast at The Intensives Institute.
