A special plate collection in your congregation for International Women’s Day 2014 can help all of us achieve our dream for women’s equality.

Why do I need the ICUUW to help achieve this goal?
ICUUW works directly with U*U women and women’s groups throughout the world.
It is the women themselves who identify their priorities, their needs, and their projects.
What is the plate collection for? 
The plate collection makes your allegiance and collegiality with women real by saying,
“Here we stand; we stand with you!” We are not imposing our ideas or our charity.
We are accepting the goals of women around the world as our own.
How will YOUR congregation benefit from this plate collection?
You will connect with women’s projects and programs in the ICUUW.
The information we send you on a quarterly basis will allow you to establish a close bond
with U*U women worldwide. You can make a powerful difference in the lives of our sisters, women or girls, around the globe.

ICUUW moves with tools in hand
to provide leadership skills
through our Global Sisters Program:

  • to help women act for justice
  • build stronger faith communities
  • inspire congregations
  • provide opportunities and actions that enhance women’s lives

Proceeds will go to support 
women’s work internationally:

  • Microfinance in Africa
  • Global Sisters initiatives and leadership development worldwide
  • Future Convocation in USA
