EVERYONE HAS A PLACE

Together, we are advocating for the change we need and working to make the things we care about real.

Our United Vision

​​​​Formed in 1994 by real people who understood then that we couldn't afford to just fight for single issues, or have one more group vying against the other for limited resources if we were really about building the kind of power we need to win meaningful change together. We've always been about moving from bold Vision to Action; winning real improvement in peoples lives and building a powerful movement for ALL of us to outlive us.


United Vision for Idaho (UVI) is Idaho's only progressive multi-issue organization dedicated to  uniting Idahoans across the state and placing Idaho at the center of a national movement for systemic change that makes social, economic and environmental justice a reality for EVERYONE.

What We Fight For

HEALTHCARE FOR ALL

FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY

HEALTHCARE FOR ALL

We face new challenge in the continuing partisan effort from the current administration and  Congress to undermine the Affordable Care Act. 


We work nationally and at the state level to advance Medicare for ALL and a system that puts people before the interests of insurance companies. 

CARING ECONOMY

FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY

HEALTHCARE FOR ALL

We need a financial system that works for people and communities, not the other way around. Our economy is about more than numbers. It’s about people. 


UVI has worked to protect CHIP, Pass Family Leave and championed legislation to ensure Pay Equity and Collective Bargaining for Idaho workers. For six years, we have with our labor partners championed a bill to raise Idaho's minimum wage.

FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY

All families should have what we need to thrive. Instead, our society is becoming more and more unequal.  It’s time to rebalance and prioritize our public budgets.


UVI has always been a fierce advocate for state and national budgets that prioritize people and families. We regularly send delegations to Washington, DC and lead civil disobedience efforts to stop the efforts that are leading to the largest wealth gap in our country's history. 

THE SOCIAL CONTRACT

FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY

We must protect and improve the economic security of disadvantaged and at-risk populations.

We fight to protect Medicare and Medicaid, and advocate for fair taxes to support public services. The Trump administration and the GOP have waged an all-out effort to take away America’s health care and put people at the mercy of the big health insurance companies again.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

THE SOCIAL CONTRACT

DECRIMINALIZATION

 We must work to dismantle the GOP efforts to undermine economic justice by awarding our tax dollars to billionaires and millionaires increasing their profits, while our wages stagnate and more of us have to borrow to make ends meet.

We’re fighting to keep students from having to mortgage their futures for a college education. Debt-free higher education — including immediate debt relief — must be part of our education promise. 



DECRIMINALIZATION

Our criminal justice system relegates one-third of Black men to prison. Racism is deeply entrenched in our criminal justice system and the rates of incarceration of people of color reflect the blatant discrimination in enforcement and our courts. 


We can replace the criminal justice and immigration systems we have now with investments in people and communities, alternatives to incarceration, and family unity instead of mass deportations and detention. 

CLIMATE JUSTICE

DISMANTLING HATE

CLIMATE JUSTICE

This crisis is the product of an economic and political system that now stands as the only nation on Earth that formally refuses to put people and planet first. 


 UVI was proud to be the fiscal sponsor of Idaho residents who have been fighting to protect farmlands and homesteads, who continue to make great strides. We are devout in making sure the climate crisis is a priority in our state and nation. 

HOUSING JUSTICE

CLIMATE JUSTICE

Today, a full-time worker earning minimum wage cannot afford a two-bedroom apartment in any county⁠—urban, suburban, or rural⁠—in the United States. Everyone living in the United States should have safe, accessible, sustainable, and permanently affordable housing: a Home’s Guarantee. 


​Over 3 million families and individuals are experiencing homelessness. Millions more live one medical bill, flat tire, or other life event away from homelessness.

Any one person’s wellness depends on everyone else’s. 


No matter what we look like, where we live, or what's in our wallets, getting sick reminds us that at our core we’re all just human. This is a moment that we must stand with and for each other across our differences and against anything and anyone who seeks to divide us. 


Moments of social crisis open up opportunities to advance radical forms of change that would be impossible in normal times. What’s immediately doable will never be enough to win what our communities need.  WE understand the importance of stepping into the breach in moments of crisis to advance a bold vision for the changes we need to build a new peoples economy and society: we fight for the larger structural changes -- and we are shifting our organizing so that we can build the power we need to get there.

EVERYONE HAS A PLACE

Everyone In! No One Left Out, No One Left Behind!

None of us can afford to not "do politics," because politics does each and everyone of us. Everyone's investment matters! We won’t all do the same things, but if we all contribute, a just world is possible!

We all have to a part to play in this critical time. The antidote to fear is not despondency or self-isolation, not anger or blame. The antidote to fear is love and connection, even where these cannot be realized in physical presence. We are rooted in the values of interdependence, mutual solidarity, shared purpose and collective action. Because when we are all in for all of us, we can create the world each and every one of us needs to thrive. 


Now is the time for us to unite across our differences and make policy choices that help every-day people. As individuals, we can wash our hands, avoid unnecessary travel and check in on our friends and neighbors. As a united force, we can demand our local, state and national governments do everything possible to protect everyone’s health, no exceptions. 


Sign up and be a part of a revolutionary new movement moment.
