Denise Cawley is Unitarian Universalist seminarian at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago. She provides spiritual and emotional care chaplaincy at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Denise has been a pivotal player in diversity, inclusion, marriage equality and voting rights. Denise serves as the intern minister at Bradford Unitarian Universalist Community Church in Kenosha, WI.
As a multi-ethnic woman identified woman at the intersection of many identities, she is keenly aware her own marginalization and privilege. She consciously lifts up voices from the margins as a way of de-centering whiteness, cisgender and heteronormative culture.
Denise is an artist. Her spiritual practice includes walks in local woods and on the shores of Lake Michigan. She takes photographs and draws them as a form of meditation. She also sells her art as a way of helping her with massive seminary expenses.
