Citizen Sponsor Program
Many of you are politically active and aware of what's going on in the world around you. But how many of you have spoken with your state legislators, or attended a meeting at the state Capitol to lobby for or against a bill?
Our new Citizen Sponsorship Program provides a super easy, non-intimidating way to make an impact on politics at the state level. Whether you're a veteran or a rookie, you can be a part of a crowd-sourced effort to increase citizen participation in Utah.
To make this project even more interesting, we're offering prizes to participants—an iPad mini and a new Kindle Fire HDX! Read the details, and watch the announcement video, by clicking here.
