  • It has been almost a year since Tim DeChristopher and a group of colleagues founded Peaceful Uprising. Since then, we have grown to be a passionate, diverse group of about 40 people, with a broad coalition of support that includes social justice organizations, gay rights advocates, artists, state and local leaders, students, environmentalists and many more. We are the front line for the climate movement in Utah. We are committed to defending a just, livable future through empowering, nonviolent action. We will be busy in the coming year with creative, hard hitting campaigns, and training new activists who want to take a stand. See what we have been up to in the last year.
