Who we are
We are a network of friends and neighbors in the Upper Keys who are deeply concerned about the current direction of our country. Inspired by the power of democracy, we are working to resist and change that direction through coordinated, issues-based actions designed to benefit the entire Upper Keys.
We respect the truth, facts, science. We promote civil discourse, tolerance for all points of view, basic human rights. We take care of each other and our neighbors. We believe that a sustainable local economy must be based on a healthy, sustainable local environment. As an organization, we are inclusive, non-partisan, unaffiliated with any political party.
What we do
- We ACT, focusing on local, state and national issues.
- We EMPOWER both individual and collective political actions.
- We CONNECT to a growing network of individuals and organizations doing similar work.
- We MOVE with small, agile teams that focus strategically on specific issue areas (healthcare, local economy and environment, social justice, etc.).
- Each team has a LEADER who orients new members, coordinates team actions, reports to other UKAN teams.
- We RESIST when we must, REACH OUT whenever we can, PERSIST always – we’re in it for the long haul!
