Utah Politics


Besides teaching and conducting academic research as the main thrust of my professional life, I’ve also spent considerable time and energy addressing local community and state problems.  Among the issues I have focused on are homelessness, pay day lending, child hunger, addiction, low-income housing, life after prison, climate change and clean air, intergenerational poverty, and educational funding. Voting for local political candidates, engaging in community organizing, and mobilizing the masses to march are among the different methodologies I’ve practiced over many years.
