We are pleased to announce the speakers for our morning plenary session, Intersectionality: Challenge and Invitation
Ruth Idakula and the Rev. Deanna Vandiver served as Co-Directors of the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal in New Orleans, LA from 2015-2018. They are religious leaders in their respective faith traditions – Ifa and Unitarian Universalism – and both have deep faith in the power of gathered community to sustain spiritual courage and to nurture life.
The experience of Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Flood of 2005 deeply shaped and set the course of their ministries. They bring these lessons forward into their spiritually-grounded, community-centered justice work.
