  • Utah Women & Politics began with a group of 40 women from Utah who were frustrated after the 2016 elections and travelled to Washington, D.C., together to be a part of the Women's March on Washington. Over the last 12 months, they got organized and raised $100,000 to launch their own political action committee. The goal: support candidates—men and women—to help create a more balanced, diverse and moderate legislature. Members Cindy Kindred, Diane Stewart and Carol Osborn explained what they've been up to and how you can join them.
