Trainer: Rev. Valerie Ackerman

Valerie AckermanValerie Ackerman

Whether members of your congregation are active in service work in the larger community, or doing social change organizing and policy work – or both! – this training is for you. Join UUs from across Prairie Star District in learning about connections between community service and social change work; deepen your understanding of the role of reflection in finding our UU moral voice; and look at ways UU leadership can be strengthened for more effective social justice partnerships and outcomes.

Trainer: as a UU community minister, Rev. Valerie Mapstone Ackerman provides spiritual support to domestic violence victims, directs Peace House–Tulsa, organizes the Oklahoma Rural Freethinkers, serves as president of Oklahoma Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and consults with congregations and social change groups. She has been a parish minister, social worker, adjunct professor, politician, therapist, counselor, and life-long dissident and heretic.

This training is co-sponsored by Prairie Star District Social Justice Network, Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance, and First Unitarian Society Social Action Committee.
