2019 Membership Drive

UAPA began in 2004 and continues to help elect progressive candidates to all levels of government.  We do this by organizing educational programs, debate watch parties, our website and newsletter, as well as by notifying volunteers of opportunities to help campaigns, making contributions, and offering yard signs and bumper stickers that enable progressives to “take a stand”.  All of this requires effort and money and the UAPA Executive Committee decided to request annual dues of $25, beginning in May 2016.

15th Anniversary Blue Brunch

In the fall of 2010, UAPA held its first annual Blue Brunch.  It was a progressive dinner hosted by three UAPA members. Now, we hope to have a celebratory Blue Brunch for our 15th Anniversary!

Join us at the Amelita Mirolo Barn for a delicious brunch and good time! We hope to have some special guests, some memories and pump up ourselves (and UAPA's checkbook) for the 2020 campaign!

Are you Concerned About Children Separated From Their Parents By OUR Government?

Despite a judge's order, over 400 children have yet to be reunited with their families following Trump’s outrageous, cruel, and shameful plan to use children as tools to deter immigration.   Politicians have condemned Trump’s policy, but have not remedied the problem.  We need to convince them to DO SOMETHING!
