The Utah Independent American Party will hold its State Convention/Independence Summit on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Juab High School in Nephi.

sponsored contentWe chose this location due to the central location within the state and wanted to be fair for all members who would like to attend. Special guest speakers this year will be Cliven Bundy (known for the standoff with BLM and government agents), Shanna Cox (also part of the Nevada and Oregon standoffs), Scott Bradley (well-known 50-year Ph.D. Constitutional Scholar from Cache Valley and Vice Presidential Candidate in 2016), etc.
