We’ve Always Been Here

Many of us have gotten into the unfortunate habit of referring to Unitarian Universalism as a “white religion,” but people of color have been Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists all along.  Rev. Jen will explore how BIPOC UUs and their contributions are an interwoven, integral part of our faith.


Rev. Jen Simon (they/she) is the assistant minister at Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden, CO, as well as cofounder of the Mountain Top BIPOC UU community.  Jen’s calling is to provide space for BIPOC UUs and their families to live into the fullness of their spiritual growth and expression, as well as to provide resources to our UU communities as they do the work of dismantling white supremacy within and without.  Jen lives with her partner Damien, son Gabe, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a snail.  She spends her free time happily trying to keep up with them (except the snail).
