The Community Action Committee (CAC) provides outreach to socially responsible institutions and programs that align with Beacon’s covenance and with a current valid 501c3 designation by supplying funds from Share the Plate and when appropriate to help designated agencies meet their goals.
Share the Plate
~ This Month’s Share the Plate Partner ~
Beacon’s community partner for July-September 2022 is
Northern Arizona Interfaith Council/Northern Arizona Interfaith Institutions for Community Leadership (NAIC/NAICL).
For July-September 2022, Beacon UU will Share the Plate with Northern Arizona Interfaith Council/Northern Arizona Interfaith Institutions for Community Leadership (NAIC/NAICL).
NAIC/NAICL is a non-partisan interdenominational organization dedicated to building leadership for civic participation across lines of race, class, age, and religion. NAICL organizes in support of issues that advance the common good, e.g. promotion of the proposed City housing bond, presentation of a pre-election Accountability Session with candidates for local elections, getting out the vote, and supporting immigrant families.
NAICL’s goals are as follows:
- To build relationships across our community based on trust and a willingness to listen to each other.
- To equip our members and leadership with skills and practices to get results.
- To achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.
Undesignated contributions to the Sunday service offerings above $300 will be presented to NAIC/NAICL. Nominations for 501c3 agencies can be made through a form located in the office manager’s office. CAC members are Katy Grant, Susan Patrick and Lynda L. Dorweiler.
