United Vision for Idaho
United Vision for Idaho was founded in 1995 after many years of wedge politics left activists isolated and
divided. Today, UVI is a collation consisting of more than twenty-five non-profit organizations. Together with
our partners, affiliates and individual members it is our mission is to transform the political landscape of Idaho
by promoting education and understanding of public policy which allows every person to live with dignity and
security in a healthy environment; by building relationships and open communication at the community level; by
promoting public dialogue on the common values of the coalition; and by working to empower participation in
democracy. United Vision for Idaho works to advance economic, social, and environmental justice. We seek to
enhance access for all people, without discrimination to the tools and resources that enable them to enhance
their lives, that of their families, communities, state and nation. We believe that far more unites than divides us
and through collaborative grassroots work, we can change public policy, dismantle oppression, and enhance the
equality, dignity, and power of all people.
UVI has 3 long-term strategic goals:

individual acts – fueled by diverse and skilled leaders.
