FUMC is active in Mission. Sometimes that means participating in a press conference or lobbying at the state capitol. It might mean calling or emailing your representatives and senators in the state legislature or your county commissioners. First UMC is engaged with the the statewide FACE Hunger & Homelessness (formerly CORC), so that we can advocate on behalf of the poor in Utah. You can sign up for the weekly FACE Hunger & Homelessness email which describes current educational events and impactful ways to take action.
2023 Action Item: Ask your Utah state representative and senator to eliminate state sales taxes from groceries. This tax is regressive and especially impacts the poor and those with low incomes.
