2022 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”. 

Tell Governor DeWine to Veto Untrained, Unlicensed Concealed Carry

Governor DeWine has SB 215 on his desk. Join the UAPA Executive Committee in asking him to veto this dangerous bill that allows anyone to conceal carry a weapon without training or licensing. Police don't even have to be informed that they have a weapon! Email NOW! governor.ohio.gov/contact

UAPA Endorses Two for UA School Board

The Upper Arlington Progressive Action (UAPA) Board recently voted to endorse two candidates for the two seats available on the UA School Board. The selections were made based on responses to a set of ten questions (below) sent to all candidates. Neither Lou Sauter nor Liz Easton responded to our questions.

Special Guests for July Book Club Meeting

Phil Ennin, who was CEO at Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers at the time The Hospital was written, has agreed to join our discussion of the book. Without him, there would have been no book. He allowed the author to have almost complete access to the hospital's inner workings.

Get Your FREE Fair Districts Yard Sign Delivered

It's Time for Fair Districts Yard SignThe Ohio Redistricting Commission and Ohio Legislators are scheduled to begin drawing the state and Congressional districts we will use for the next 10 years. They will be using the rules enacted into the Ohio Constitution by wide margins when we voted in 2015 and 2018.

Interested in Redistricting in 2021? Learn More.

Back in 2015, Ohioans passed a new process for redistricting state districts; in 2018, we passed a (slightly different) process for Congressional districts. Now, in 2021 we have the opportunity to put these processes into action. Find out more about how redistricting works and what you can do to make sure we have the fairest districts possible.

MLK Day of Service Food Drive

Update: We delivered three stuffed SUVs of food to the CRC. We had petitions for three municipal judge candidates. Thanks to all the volunteers and donors for a successful event!
