OUR MISSION

Here at o2 Utah, we're in the business of holding elected officials accountable. We're stepping up to the plate on both sides of the aisle to ensure our legislators prioritize the environment.
Air quality, public lands, renewable energy, you name it. These are the issues impacting us every day here in Utah, and they've been sidestepped for  far too long.
We're changing who the decision makers are and what they care about.

OUR THEORY OF CHANGE

We are improving the environment by changing minds through bold policy vision and electoral involvement.
