Micah Bucey, a graduate of Fordham University and Union Theological Seminary and a United Church of Christ-ordained minister, currently serves Judson Memorial Church of New York City, a congregation committed to curiously seeking the intersections between spirituality, justice, and creativity. At Judson, Micah founded and continues to spearhead Judson Arts Wednesdays (JAW), a weekly art and food gathering that provides free meals for guests in need and developmental space for artists in need, colliding all in a program that addresses both food justice and the art community's constant lack of resources and support.
