UCM consists of six (6) clusters throughout St. Clair and Madison Counties in Illinois
We are in the process of reconnecting, re-engaging, and rebuilding our clusters. The purpose of our clusters are to create core teams within organizations, places of worship, and even individual homes to build power within a shared community. Leaders will be identified and trained to build power around issues that impact their surrounding community.
Each UCM Cluster has a designated organizer assigned to them for training and development. Please see the following list for each cluster, coverage, and organizer assigned.
