Community Ministry Internship


Walnut Avenue Family and Women's Center

       In October, 2022, I embarked upon an internship with Walnut Ave Family and Women's Center to be a  hotline advocate for people experiencing domestic violence.

The extensive training gave us, a cohort of trainees, a wide variety of resources and significant insights on the difficulties involved for people in this precarious situation.


One of my take-aways is that the rhetorical question, "Why doesn't she just leave him?" is over simplified and essentially blames the victim for their predicament.

I will also train to be a part of  WAFWC's Space for Change, a program based on principles of transformative justice. This is a collaborative program that aims to provide a consent-based option for people who have caused harm to receive support in making safer, healthier choices in their relationships for

long-term well-being.

As a Community Ministry Internship, I will use the skills I have acquired through my education and life experiences to guide and support me in the process. Though Walnut Ave is a secular organization, my spiritual practices and UU values, principles, and sources inform me every step of the way.

Blessed be this process


 Everything we do is a form of communication, it is one of the most essential modalities a human being has to work with as we make our way through our days.

​​The Seed of Communication and Justice For All is intended to explore aspects of communication and how it applies to justice in particular. Much is derived from our words, laws, economic decisions, the distribution of resources.

How we participate in these aspects of the human enterprise is important; what we do matters!

I appreciate this quote by Byran Stevenson,

"The opposite of poverty is not wealth but justice."

Woman's Reproductive
Choice and Body Autonomy

     On August 29, 2022, I was a part of a conversation hosted by Suki Wessling and Christine Barrington on KSQD radio that included Rabbi Paula Marcus (Temple Beth El), Pastor Dave Pattee (Peace United Church of Christ), and myself representing Unitarian Universalism. We discuss the important topic of Reproductive Rights and Choice and how our faith, our sacred scripture, and denominations support a woman's rights and body autonomy regarding pregnancy, without interference or coercion from government or religion. To listen, follow this link to KSQD Radio archives.
