Progressive Majority Candidate Recruitment and Leadership Training
Friday, March 27
Obama fever “blue-ified” many conservative states across our nation. Building on that momentum, the Progressive Majority will hold a workshop on how to run a progressive campaign. It’s just the pep talk you’ll need if you plan to run blue in a red state like Utah. Take note, there is a $25 registration fee. But, if you consider yourself a progressive candidate-to-be, one willing to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that come from running for office in Utah with a “D” next your name, then you’ll want to check out this event. Besides, you’re going to need all the help you can get. Salt Lake City Main Library auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, March 27, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
Freedom to Dream: Rights of Immigrants
Friday, March 27
Deep in the heart of Utah County, ACLU of Utah will be screening the short documentary Freedom to Dream, which looks at the marginalization of undocumented immigrants.
