The state legislative session begins today!
The election is over. The weekend marches are over. But today in Salt Lake and ongoing across Utah — from Logan to Green River and everywhere in between — Action Utah members will march on!
The Women’s March on the Utah Capitol today rings in the first day of the 2017 Utah state legislative session — our big chance as ordinary citizens to influence policies across a range of important issues. So march with us out of D.C., Salt Lake, Park City, St. George, Ogden and Moab and into immediate and ongoing calls to action that make a real difference.
For the next 45 days 104 state representatives will gather on the hill to propose, debate and pass all of our state’s legislation for the year. There are already more than 1,000 bills filed – an unprecedented number – with many more to come on critical issues facing our communities.
Action Utah is working hard to help ordinary citizens influence social, health and environmental policies on the hill this year. But in order to make a real impact we need our Action Utah members to take action!
During the session we will continue to send you weekly calls to action on state and national issues. In addition, we post daily and urgent calls to action on our website and on Facebook and Twitter.
For those of you wanting to get even more involved in the state legislative session, please join one of our Action Teams in social policy, health policy or environmental policy. More on that below! Or please visit our 2017 State Legislative Session page for more information!
