Uniting In Crisis
Coronavirus, earthquake, economic recession—we live in scary times. However, the reality is we don't get to determine the crises we face. At the same time, we do get to choose our responses to those crises. Those responses determine the sort of people we are. What sort should we be in a time of crisis?
Those who choose faith in the future over our fears of the present.
Those who consider others and not just themselves.
Those who want to help solve a crisis rather than simply endure it.
In the United Utah Party, we are not the sort of people who go along with the flow. Rather, we see a problem and want to solve it. We consider others and want to make a difference for our community and our state, sometimes even when it is a sacrifice for us. We have faith that our efforts to change the world around us will bear fruit, even in the midst of a crisis.
Thanks to all of you who make this party a reality. It was simply a vision a few years ago. Now it is a reality—one that is growing and will continue to grow over time. Each person who joins is sending a signal to many other people that it is okay to join a new party, it is acceptable to take on a new approach.
Thank you for all you do to make the world around you a better place, particularly in a time of crisis.
Together, Let's Make Utah Even Better
–Richard Davis, Chair

Come to Our Virtual
Calling all Uniters!
As you're aware, due to COVID-19, this year's United Utah caucus will be held online this year. It will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24th, and will be available via the internet on devices such as computers, phones, and tablets.
We are the only party having virtual caucuses, which means that this "third option" party is the only option party for caucus night. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends, family, and social media followers to come experience and understand what United Utah is all about.
To attend the event, simply go to the Caucus Night event on the United Utah website, and click on the link there. When prompted, click "Open zoom.us" to enter the virtual caucus.
So come to caucus night this Tuesday, and invite everyone! Though we are separated by necessity as we practice social distancing to protect ourselves and our loved ones, we can stand together, united, wherever we may be.
Stay safe and healthy everyone, and we'll see you online on Tuesday!
