Reverend Millie Phillips
Rev. Millie Phillips began her path to becoming an ordained Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister after retiring from a utility company, where she was a power plant control operator for 17 years and a tech writer for electrical maintenance for another 11 years. She has been active in the labor movement since the 1970s, including having been a shop steward, labor council delegate and unit officer in an IBEW local, and serving two terms as the president of the San Francisco chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women. As a minister, she served a UU congregation in Lake County and is currently an “affiliated community minister” with San Francisco UU. Serving as FAME’s faith-rooted organizer in Contra Costa County combines her passions for economic justice and progressive interfaith organizing.
