Letters to the Editor

Do you feel strongly about an issue? One way to express your ideas and perhaps, persuade others, is to write a letter to the editor (LTE) of a newspaper. If you write it, we may publish it, even if the newspaper doesn't. Send your LTE to us at feedback@uaprogressiveaction.com.

If you don't want to write letters yourself, but could help organize others to produce letters, WE WANT YOU! Volunteer to be Letters to the Editor Coordinator.

Democratic Candidates in the 15th District

The most important thing UAPA members can do to change the politics of obstruction in Washington is to regain the 15th Congressional seat for a Democrat.  The original redistricting map had the 15th as a snake-shaped monstrosity that was only 43% Democratic—a no-win situation. The compromise redistricted 15th is now 47% Democratic. And with President Obama on the ticket, the 15th is in definite play.
 

UAPA is rolling up our sleeves this fall!
