She is chair of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice Council and serves on the Ministerial Leadership Network of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. She is a member of the UU Society for Community Ministries, a movement of lay ministers and ordained clergy committed to promoting a broad spectrum of healing and social justice ministries.

Marti is a member of the Decatur Writers Studio, a year round program of the Decatur Book Festival, one of the largest independent book festivals in the country. She is a published poet with chapbooks: Prickly Pear (Farm House Press, 2009), South/West (Shakespeare's Sisters Press, 2013), and Life Lists (expected publication in 2016).

Rev. Marti Keller is available to perform weddings. For those who are interested in the kind of services that reflect their own spirituality and religious beliefs, who want to avoid patriarchal and sexist words and symbols, who want to celebrate rather than solemnize their commitment, Unitarian Universalist services are ideal.

Latest Poem

At the Sherwin Williams

Remembering the older poet who finally painted her Berkeley hills bedroom red
For passion
For youthful lovers

I pick coral and faint coral
to match the bathroom tile
Someone else chose for a first house
Because I have never really owned
A home.
