Unit/Local Group Survey

Over the past five years, the United Methodist Women census has moved beyond just a numbers-reporting tool to more of a survey about the health and vitality of United Methodist Women units. This year, we are asking unit/local group presidents to select the area(s) in which their members and units are thriving. This will help inform the national office and conference leadership on strengths and areas for their improvement.

The deadline is March 30, 2021.
After this date, the survey will not be accessible.

The 2020 Unit Survey link is

Tip:  Many people find it easiest to view the Survey, print it out, write the answers to the questions on the printout, then go back to the Survey and fill it in. 

Need help? Please contact us and we will have a District UMW team member work with you to get the survey submitted.

Quick News: Virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly 6/20/20, New Faith Talks

In this ECR District UMW Quick News:¬† Join United Methodist Women in a virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington on June 20.¬† Also, the monthly UMW “Faith Talks” online conversations continue to empower us to put faith, hope and love into action with the June 18 topic, “Caring for the Body.”

June 20, 2020: Virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly

Join United Methodist Women and hundreds of organizations & grassroots movements as we unite from coast-to-coast for a virtual Mass Poor People’s Assembly and Moral March on Washington, DC.

The Poor People‚Äôs Campaign reminds us that ‚ÄúEveryone has a Right to Live.‚ÄĚ The turmoil in our nation reveals long-term structural injustice and we cannot go back to an untenable ‚Äúnormal.‚ÄĚ

United Methodist Women is a national faith member of the Poor People’s Campaign, A National Call for Moral Revival, and serves on their Prophetic Council of faith leaders. With the Poor People’s Campaign, they demand voting rights and a just economy, and encourage local individuals and groups to connect to the campaign for local faith and community responses.

Building on the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s Poor People’s Campaign of 50 years ago, the campaign addresses the intersecting realities of poverty, racism, environmental degradation and militarism, including State violence in communities of color in the U.S. It integrates United Methodist Women priorities of Economic Inequality, Racial Justice and Ending Mass Incarceration, Climate Justice and Maternal Health.
