Anti-War Protest, Child Welfare Legislative Oversight Panel & Utah Food Co-Op Market Sale

By Eric S. Peterson
Posted // December 16,2010 - While Citizen Revolt knows that holiday greetings and well-wishes are nice to receive this time of year, action is better. So why not sound a true note for peace by joining an anti-war protest? You can also get more involved in crucial state services by attending a Child Welfare Legislative Committee. For holiday shopping, you won’t want to miss a sale of gift certificates at the Utah Community Food Co-Op to give as gifts and to help those in need.

Anti-War Protest
Thursday, Dec. 16

Don’t let the pressures of “Stressmas” make you forget the meaning of the season. Set aside time in your busy schedule, even if only an hour, to join the Wasatch Coalition for Peace and Justice and local veterans in a rally for peace, in solidarity with a Washington, D.C., rally. Speak up and speak out for peace in our world.
Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building, 125 S. State, Dec. 16, 10 a.m. WasatchPeaceAndJustice.org. For more information, e-mail daynegoodwin@gmail.com.

Child Welfare Legislative Oversight Panel
Friday, Dec. 17

For a state that’s big on small government and keeping government out of the lives of taxpayers, the Child Welfare Legislative Oversight Panel provides a unique glimpse of state services specifically directed at the state’s children and families and the effectiveness of offices such as the Division of Child and Family Services. Hear reports on the effectiveness of DCFS and catch a preview of child-protection bills slated for the 2011 Legislature.

Utah Food Co-Op Market Sale
Monday, Dec. 20

The do-gooders of the nonprofit Utah Food Co-Op are dedicated to providing local food at significant discounts to those who have been hit the hardest by the economy. This holiday season, they’re promoting gift certificates as gifts of dignity—a service that allows low-income folks the opportunity to buy the discount groceries and not feel ashamed for the assistance. You can also give them to family, friends and neighbors.
