WHO WE ARE
People4Utah is a community of Utahns from all political persuasions. We are ready to fight the far-right political establishment that has run Utah for the last 40 years—an establishment that is more concerned with maintaining its power and control than it is with getting things done to benefit all Utahns. We will fight Trump and his weak-kneed apologists in Utah with everything we can…but we cannot do it without you. We need your help!
WHAT WE ARE DOING
People4Utah is working to create mechanisms that ensure the real majority of Utahns--men and women who believe in a centrist, pragmatic public policy approach—can be heard. Our end goal is to support and inspire “radical pragmatic problem solving” by Utah’s elected officials on the issues the MAJORITY of Utahs care about.
People4Utah is made up of people from all walks of life who believe that what works best for the majority of Utahns is worth pursuing. We are not a PAC nor aligned with a singular party or special interest. We are funded by the generosity of our members (join us!) and led by growing a cadre of local leaders willing to put their time and money behind causes all people of Utah care about.
