Join UUJAZ and UU the Vote this Thursday, September 22nd from 5-7pm to make calls to Arizona voters about Proposition 209!

No Arizona family should lose their home or car due to medical emergencies or accidents, or be trapped into unending debt by unfair interest rates on medical care.

Prop 209 protects consumers from predatory debt collection by:

  • Increasing the protected value of people’s primary home to better match Arizona’s median home value
  • Increasing the allowed value of protected household goods and bank accounts
  • Increasing the protected value of vehicles
  • Limiting wage garnishment for debt to no more than 10% of disposable earnings
  • Limiting the interest rate on medical debt to no more than 3%

Help protect Arizonans from losing their cars, homes and wages due to unfair medical debt!

If you've never participated in a phonebank before, we'll train you! This is an important issue with enormous impact! Can you help us connect with voters?

Save Our Schools is turning in petitions on Friday!
All petitions must be notarized and turned into the Stop Dark Money office in downtown Phoenix by Friday at noon at the very latest. Find a notary and turn in location and report the signatures you collected so we can celebrate UUs hard work. Everyone who collected signatures and tells us about them here will be invited to the SOS turn in press conference and celebration.
