Hello! My name is Abigail Clauhs. I’m an interfaith chaplain, Unitarian Universalist minister, and activist who is deeply invested in spiritually grounded healing and justice work.
I’m all about the good news of interdependence, from galaxies to mycelium to me and you, and the fierce love that liberation asks of us–from building communities of care to dismantling oppressive systems. I believe we need each other, and am always up for the work of collaboration and collective dreaming/doing. Let’s connect!
A Little More About Me
Originally, I hail from Charleston, South Carolina, where I was born and raised. I came north to Boston University for college, where I became deeply involved in interfaith activism and social justice work. After that, I headed west to Claremont School of Theology in Southern California, an intentionally interreligious institute, to complete my M.Div. in Interfaith Chaplaincy. Working as a chaplain in Portland, Oregon, now, I continue to engage in activism and focus on healing justice in my spiritual care work, and stay involved with my Unitarian Universalist community locally and nationally. I also find joy in improv, creative writing, communing with trees, and whipping up my Nana’s recipe for biscuits and gravy (because the revolution will, obviously, include comfort food). After moving around so much, I’m looking forward to growing deeper roots and cultivating meaningful community here in the Pacific Northwest. Don’t hesitate to say hello!
