Crossroads Urban Center encourages everyone to get involved with the political process and advocate for low income Utahns.  One important way to get involved with the political process is to register to vote.  You can register to vote in Utah here.  It is also important to contact your elected officials. You can find contact information for several elected officials here.

Many people find they can make a bigger impact on the political process by being part of a group.  At Crossroads we have grassroots groups that meet with elected officials and organize protests and other events to highlight poverty issues.  You can learn more about those groups in the "Fighting Poverty section of this website.
