Quad Cities Interfaith still has openings in several leadership training programs: The Mottet Institute: N'tosake (leadership training for and by women); National Leadership Institute. Strong leaders make strong communities and strong communities need strong leaders. Funding is available to those who are interested, but might not have the financial resources.
We also are offering individuals the chance to release a tagged monarch to symbolically represent loved ones, hopes, dreams, experiences. Butterflies will be released September 1st through mid-to-late October and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Order forms can be found below.
Finally, we want to stress the importance of attending our Task Force Assembly on Monday, August 20th. All current--and future--task force members and interested community members are invited. We hope you can join us.
Quad Cities Interfaith is working to unify the member organizations affiliated with our work of "Creating a More Just Society." Below you can find articles and events of interest to members of our community. Also, please note the schedule of Task Force Meetings. You are welcome to join us at any.
If you would like more information or would like to get more involved, call 563-322-4910 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

National Leadership Training!
First Presbyterian Church in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa has been caring for people affected by the immigration raid. While many household and grocery items are needed, the greatest need right now is funds. Rents are due. Utilities need to be paid. And legal assistance costs money. And for most, it was the breadwinner of the family that has been taken into custody or deported.
Quad City residents can drop donations off at the
Unitarian Universalist Congregation
3707 Eastern Avenue
Please call the church 563-359-0816 before you drop off items, as staff presence varies slightly from day-to-day.
Due to vacation schedules, the QCI office will be operating on limited hours from August 20-31. Emails and phone messages will only be checked sporadically. If you need information during this period, you can contact President Marcy Doyle, 309-912-6266 email@example.com
