So often it seems like a rally is about “down with” this or that. So, it’s nice when organizers bring back the love. Like a rally this Friday for love and compassion for the families of undocumented immigrants facing the passing of Senate Bill 81, 2007’s omnibus immigration bill. You can also take the kiddies out to the University of Utah’s second annual Youth Summit on Alternative Energy. Then, gardening season is in full swing, so you might want get a little how-to class on sustainable gardening.

Standing on the Side of Love
Friday, June 26
The Unitarian Universalist Association, along with multiple faith leaders, will hold a rally in solidarity with the families of undocumented immigrants. (For those interested, the Unitarians are also hosting a national General Assembly the same weekend at the Salt Palace Convention Center.) Organizers will protest immigrant discrimination, blitzkrieg deportation raids and the passage of SB 81 that would cross-deputize police officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement powers. The Gallivan Center, 36 E. 200 South, June 26, 5-6:30 p.m., 617-742-2100, info@uua.org

2nd Annual Utah Youth Summit
Monday, June 29

The youth summit is hosting eco-conscious high-schoolers from across the state as well as members of the U’s school of engineering and local business leaders to discuss the future of alternative-energy development in the state. Think of its as a giant collaborative science fair—except the prize ain’t no blue ribbon. It’s a chance to forward on recommendations for real change in environmental policy to the governor’s office. Registration is $25. University of Utah, Warnock Engineering Building, June 29, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., contact Dave Richerson, 801-585-9298
