Ever realized that you’re not a fan of big government, but you’re also not a fan of morality police? If so, you may be a Libertarian! Find out more at this month’s Libertarian group meet-up. Later, you can attend a fundraiser by the Utah Society of Environmental Education group, which is seeking to get more green thinking in Utah’s classrooms. Finally, one of the Legislature’s final redistricting meetings will decide the fate of Utah’s political boundaries for the next decade.

Libertarian Party of Utah Meet-up
Thursday, Sept. 22

K-Talk Radio host, Utah Libertarian chairman and hypnotist Jake Shannon will be hosting this hangout meeting and talking about how Libertarians can take the power back from the corporate elite.
