Welcome to 2020! There’s a new initiative from our UUA that we’re excited to share with you in this issue of the MidAmerica Messenger. It’s called UU the Vote, and it invites our religious community to speak with moral courage and act with prophetic clarity and determination in the 2020 electoral cycle. You can find all the details on UU the Vote in the article below. There’s also information about upcoming webinars, the Winter Chalice Lighter Call, this year’s Regional Assembly in Rockford, Illinois, and much more.

UU the Vote supports UU congregations and UU organizations with resources to mobilize voters, counter voter suppression, and engage in spiritually grounded, values-based issue conversations with voters in their communities during the 2020 election year.
