    What Noah Learned at UU Mid-West Leadership School by Noah Rowan I have privilege. White privilege. Male privilege. Cis-gender privilege. Economic privilege. Until recently, I felt guilty about my privilege. I shoved it down and denied its existence. I waited for someone to reassure me that privilege was a made up phenomenon. I watched others do the work but called myself an ally. I never spoke up about the numerous opportunities I received. I couldn’t explain or fix it, so why acknowledge that privilege was existent in my life? Recently, I attended UU Youth Midwest Leadership School in Beloit, WI.

    Fiercely UU is a new blog series where Unitarian Universalist young adults tell stories about what our faith requires of us and how they follow that call.  To be fiercely UU is to proclaim human worth and interdependence.

    Apply to Serve as Youth Caucus Co-Dean and See What You Learn ! by Eric Broner, Co-Dean, Youth Caucus 2016-2017 My week in Columbus at General Assembly was full of many things- questions, answers, memories, regrets, and above all, lessons learned. Not only was Columbus my first General Assembly as a Youth Caucus dean, but it was also my first General Assembly – an experience that has had a huge impact on my life. I think I learned a few things about myself, especially as a leader: 1. Accountability is the number one aspect of leadership. Accountability is equivalent to reliability. Others’ ability to trust in my work, in my leadership helps me get things…
