Hi Scott -- Just a quick reminder that there is still time to donate $24 for the 24th of July.

Please donate $24 to help us reach our goal of $2,400 and bring more balance to our great state.

Happy Pioneer Day and thank you for your donation,




Dear Scott,

When Mormon pioneers arrived in Utah 167 years ago they saw a dusty desert and decided to call it home. Since then it has blossomed as a diverse array of immigrants and ways of thinking have built up our state into what it is today.

You’re a part of that diversity. You’re a pioneer, too. Together, we’re part of the proud movement of progressive pioneers that are working to bring balance to our wonderful state. But we still have a ways to go.

Utahns like Eagle Forum President Gayle Ruzicka and Sutherland Institute President Paul Mero don’t believe that all of us are pioneers. They are stuck in the same 19th-century way of thinking that says only a certain type of Utahn qualifies as a pioneer.

But Utah belongs to all of us, this is our time. You are part of a new pioneer movement of progressive change.

Help sustain this movement by contributing $24 for the 24th of July. Your donation supports forward thinking and furthers the efforts of progressive pioneers like you and me.

A balanced Utah means that all Utahns--black and white and brown, Republican and Democrat, male and female, gay or straight or transgender--have a voice in the political process. A balanced Utah recognizes that we are all modern day pioneers.

My Family

This is the place, now is the time. Stand up proudly as a progressive pioneer with your donation to the Alliance for a Better UTAH by clicking here.

With your help, we can each of us work to restore balance to Utah and to add value to each of our diverse experiences as citizens of this great state.

Happy Pioneer Day,
