Letter from Aisha Hauser

by Aisha Hauser, Director of Lifelong Learning

Dear East Shore Families and Friends,

I have decided that I will end my tenure at East Shore in June 2020. My national work on anti-racism and curriculum development has been growing and it is time for me to transition to a different role in Unitarian Universalism.

As the longest serving member of the Staff Leadership Team, my time at East Shore has been marked with tremendous transitions and transformations. I have learned so much from all of you about what it means to live out our Unitarian Universalist faith fully.

Sometimes it has been uncomfortable, which is to be expected on journeys toward collective liberation. While there has been some pain, there has also been joy, laughter and support from so many of you. East Shore will always have a special place in my heart.

As for what is next for me and my family, one never knows where our journeys in life will take us. For now, I will be working on a book focused on collaborative leadership, developing curriculum and continuing to consult with congregations and secular entities all over the country.

I look forward to working with Rev. Steve Furrer, the Lifespan Integration Team, the Adult Programs Committee and the Board of Trustees on a smooth transition.

I offer deep gratitude for all the people who have offered me love and support through the years.

In Faith,

Aisha Hauser, MSW

Director of Lifelong Learning
