The Rev. Meghan D. Young, is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. She earned her Masters of Divinity at Yale Divinity School. She also holds a Bachelors of Humanities and Arts in Design and Professional Writing, with a minor in Religious Studies, from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.

She has also served as a hospital chaplain in a level 1 trauma center, since 2009, utilizing her specialty in emergency and trauma care. Prior to ministry, Meghan, worked as an AmeriCorps*VISTA, with young social entrepreneurs, particularly youth traditionally not asked to serve. She recruited and supported them as they developed and launched entrepreneurships for sustainable community change. She also managed the national youth voice movement, as an advocate for children and youth to be present and heard in places of decision making. Meghan deeply believes that all people should have a seat and voice at the table, taking seriously the tenets of her faith that we are to love our neighbor, welcome the stranger, feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and visit those who are imprisoned. She is passionate about trauma informed care and working in solidarity and partnership for justice. As both a friend, and former colleague of Taylar Nuevelle, she is excited to support and be involved in the transformative and much needed work of Who Speaks for Me?
