Make Your Voice Heard:
Utah State Government Set To Receive $1.6 Billion

Bishop Hayashi presents at the United Today Stronger Tomorrow Launch

Bishop Hayashi joined faith leaders and more than 100 Utahns on Wednesday night to show state leaders a bold vision for how to spend Utah’s $1.6+ billion in American Rescue Plan funds.

After consulting nearly 1000 Utahns impacted by Covid through surveys and small group meetings, the faith and civic leaders of United Today, Stronger Tomorrow unveiled a comprehensive agenda for housing, health care, education, jobs, small business, family support, and infrastructure. 

“These issues are all interconnected,” said Rev. Lynn Miller Jackson of Hilltop United Methodist Church in Sandy. “If we want a stronger Utah, we must have a state where our children can get an excellent education and go to an affordable college or technical school, and get a great job that allows them to support their family, keep a safe home, and breathe clean air. This is what a stronger tomorrow for Utah looks like. Utah has more than $3 billion to spend on education, housing, health care, child care and unrestricted funds. We can do everything on this list.”

Ultimately our State Legislature will decide how this money is spent, and send it to Governor Cox for approval. The special session to make these decisions starts on May 19.

It is important that we let our elected official know TODAY what we want them to do.

We have a tool that makes it easy for you to send an email message to Gov. Cox and your own state representatives and senators: https://unitedtoday.org/ut-agenda/

The Episcopal Church in Utah

Bishop Daniel S. Tuttle formally started the Episcopal Church in Utah with his arrival in Salt Lake City on July 2, 1867. The Church became known for its social justice ministry with the creation of Utah’s first school system for children of all religions. Bishop Tuttle also started St. Mark’s Hospital to serve the thousands of miners who had no other health care options. He tirelessly traveled by stage and horseback to establish churches from Montana to Arizona.

Today, The Rt. Rev. Scott B. Hayashi continues the heritage of his predecessor, Bishop Tuttle addressing contemporary social justice issues such as immigration, LGBT, gun violence, poverty and other issues. Bishop Hayashi also shepherds 22 congregations, many of them the original churches established by Bishop Tuttle.
