Meg McGuire is a 2019-2020 Hilda Mason Teaching Fellow and a candidate for Unitarian Universalist ministerial fellowship. Her lifelong UU faith inspires her commitment to spiritually grounded education and movement toward collective liberation. Shaped by her experience with anti-oppression organizing and facilitation, as well her academic background in feminist, queer and critical theory, her teaching and facilitation emphasize dialogue, praxis, and varied modes of teaching and learning. Prior to discerning a call to ministry, Meg spent five years working as a labor organizer with hotel and restaurant workers in New York City and northern New Jersey. She strives to integrate this background in organizing and economic justice work into her ministerial formation. In Fall 2019, Meg will teach a course which explores the interplay between labor and spiritual leadership and the relevance of a labor framework for social movements, vocational discernment and organizational management.
Meg holds an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Wesleyan University and a certificate in Justice Ministry Education from Auburn Seminary. She is currently a second year Masters of Divinity student at Starr King School for the Ministry.
