The proceeds of our November 5th “First Sunday” collection will benefit One Iowa.
One Iowa is a catalyst for improving the lives of LGBTQ Iowans. First Sunday donations will help provide trainings for people who can’t afford them, often in the workplace. This year, One Iowa has trained over 4,500 people, resulting in many positive workplace changes, anything from adding pronouns to email signatures to adding a gender-neutral bathroom. In addition, One Iowa trains healthcare providers to improve knowledge about how to be affirming to the LGBTQ community. This work is more important than ever due to the ban on gender-affirming healthcare for those under 18. One Iowa also often provides training to churches.

CHECKS SHOULD BE MAILED TO:
DMIEC, P.O. Box 30065, Des Moines, IA 50310
Checks can be written either to “One Iowa” or to “DMIEC” with “First Sunday” in the memo line.
We would prefer that all checks be mailed to DMIEC. If you mail your check directly to the organization, please inform Ed Arnold of the amount, if you feel comfortable, so the Social Justice Committee can get an accurate count of donations.
