In keeping with the values and priorities given to the UCW by the founding members, the National Ecumenical Celebrations Committee presents this year’s program focusing on human rights.

The 2011 theme, “Living Our Legacy, Driving the Movement,” reflects the UCW’s 70-year history and the need for all present day members to continue to drive the movement forward.
