OUR NATIONAL PARTNERS
ABOUT: Moving from Vision to Action, we advocate a bold agenda, not a list of policies the establishment says we can win, but what the people of Idaho and this country must win! We are building power for a new multi-racial working class movement that centers Idaho in the local, state and national change we need, while we get the state representation we deserve. From cities to family farms, we are Idahoans committed to revisioning and remaking our democracy.
UVI is comprised of thousands of people who know it is critical to unite statewide efforts in an overarching strategy to win real improvements in people’s lives and center Idaho in the larger fights that make that truly possible. We focus on political education, civic engagement and direct action, and strengthening relationships between diverse people and organizations. We know that uniting, engaging, and mobilizing individuals and communities across Idaho requires each and everyone of us. It requires organizations that have the integrity to invest in building people power, not ours.
So we are creating a real peoples movement capable of achieving our shared goals, holding elected official and all those seeking office accountable to us. We are crafting and passing policies at the local and national level. We are centering Idaho in the larger view of America and changing the cultural narrative that has disadvantaged our state. Together, we are advocating for the change we need and working to make the things we care about real.
Nothing About US Without US:
When we say “poor and working people,” we mean all of us who are hurt by corporations and the wealthy few: poor people, low-income people, working class people, professionals, small business owners and unemployed people.
We mean Black, white, Latino, Asian and Native people.
We mean youth and students, and we mean retired people, elderly people and people with disabilities.
We mean men, women, transgender, and gender non-conforming.
We mean straight people and lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer people.
We mean citizens, and we mean immigrants.
We mean All of us.

OUR MEMBERS, STATE PARTNERS, AND ALLIES
PEOPLE'S ACTION is a powerful new force for democracy and economic fairness. From family farms to big cities, from coast to coast, we’re fighting for community over greed, justice over racism, and people and planet over big corporations.
THE ECONOMIC POLICY INSTITUTE conducts research and analysis on the economic status of working America. EPI proposes public policies that protect and improve the economic conditions of low- and middle-income workers and assesses policies with respect to how they affect those workers.
THE MIDWEST ACADEMY is a national training institute committed to advancing the struggle for social, economic, and racial justice. From local neighborhood groups to statewide and national organizations, Midwest Academy has trained more than a quarter-million grassroots activists from hundreds of organizations and coalitions in organizing philosophy, methods and skills that enable ordinary people to actively participate in the democratic process.
