United Policyholders (UP) is a non-profit organization that is a voice and an information resource for insurance consumers in all 50 states. Our work is funded by foundations and donations from individuals and businesses. We do not accept funding from insurance companies.Baria, whose family lost their home in Katrina, has been a strong advocate for people and businesses along the Gulf Coast. Given his personal and professional experience, it is certainly no surprise that this organization would chose Baria for its Board.
UP has helped change laws in favor of consumers, exposed and corrected wrongdoing and helped bring about successful claim settlements after fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, business interruption losses and disabling injuries and illnesses. We are a trusted source of information for consumers, public officials, courts and the media.
Baria is currently running for House, seeking to replace retiring Speaker pro tempore J. P. Compretta.
