2016 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, and our website and newsletter, as well as by notifying volunteers of opportunities to help and providing yard signs and bumper stickers that enable progressives to “take a stand”.  All of this requires effort and money and the UAPA Executive Committee has decided to request annual dues of $25, beginning in May 2016.

Order your Yard Signs Now!

It's that time again! It's election season and time to show your colors by sporting a snazzy UA for Hillary sign OR the classic Clinton/Kaine sign in your yard. Order HERE.
