September 2017 - Dear MidAmerica Chalice Lighter,
As you know, Chalice Lighter grants are funded by small donations from individuals like you — donations that are pooled together to help congregations from across our large MidAmerica Region of the UUA with specific growth projects.
For the 2017 Fall Call, the MidAmerica Regional Chalice Lighter Committee received three applications. We are pleased to announce that all three have been chosen for this Chalice Lighter call:

During the months of April, May, and June of this year, 682 of the 1,038 UU congregations — and 32 other UU communities — held UU White Supremacy Teach-ins. That round of teach-ins brought moments of triumph, awkwardness, fierce debate, powerful revelations, joy and pain for Unitarian Universalists of color…and much more.
The Teach-In team once again is calling our siblings in faith to action by continuing the work of growth and learning. On Sunday, October 15th or Sunday, October 22nd, join together with UU communities nationwide in Part Two of the UU White Supremacy Teach-in. For more information visit https://www.uuteachin.org.
MidAmerica Region is offering a webinar to help congregational leaders prepare for White Supremacy Teach-In 2 on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, from 07:45 to 09:00 pm Eastern Time. Visit https://midamericauua.org/events/webinars/eventdetail/728/-/webinar-white-supremacy-teach-in to register.
