Building a Better Future for Our Communities

Community Power

Common Ground

We bring people together from across the political spectrum to find common ground and to hold leaders accountable for what communities need.

building power

We develop, train, and mobilize people so that they can fight to ensure that the government works for them. We also help them defend against corporations who too often exploit their workers and the communities where they operate.

a home for all community members

We work with people who feel unseen and alienated from political and social extremism. We believe that this is the most powerful place from which we can tackle and solve today’s toughest problems: affordable housing, healthcare, improving our schools, and clean air, water, and energy.

It's Up to Us

a stronger democracy

Too often, the people who think they know what’s best for our communities don’t even live in them. UTST believes that it’s time to hear from you. No one has a better idea about how to improve your community, how to make it a more welcoming place for everyone, and how to make it more democratic, than you.

winning for our communities

Winning matters. We work with community members and leaders to identify problems that can be solved and then can be built upon to strengthen your community’s ability to win even more in the months and years ahead.

holding decision makers accountable

Community members like you are the only ones who can hold the people who make decisions that impact your community accountable. We work with you to make sure that every decision made is connected to the priorities that you and your community have identified as most important.
