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.

R.I.P. Dave Girves

Central Ohio progressives have lost a tireless activist, and for many, a good friend when Dave Girves passed away on January 16, 2015. His organizational skills, energy and kindness will be much missed.

Cathy Levine of Universal Health Care Action Network (UHCAN) remembers Dave:

We Need YOU to GOTV

The outcome of this election turns on our ability to get people to come out and vote. You can help by canvassing or phone banking. Canvassers will be going to friendly voters to remind them to vote, early if possible.

2014 is an important election year. In Ohio, we will be electing a (we hope) new Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Auditor and Attorney General. In addition, Congressional Representatives are being elected and replacing Steve Stivers with Scott Wharton is a priority.  Finally, we have county offices like Franklin County Commissioner and Franklin County Auditor and local judgeships.
