#MeToo Conversation
We hear a lot about Hollywood and we see actors and producers cast down from their positions of authority. But what about our community? At MeToo: a Townhall Conversation, you can bring your stories of survival from either sexual harassment or sexual assault, talk about the implications and look at what the #MeToo movement means as we go forward. "It's time for Utahns to come together to discuss the future of our community," say the organizers—the Rape Recovery Center and Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Glendale Branch, 1375 S. Concord St., 801-746-0404, Tuesday, Jan. 30, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2DrIpxm.

Whatever Protest
The Wake Up Utah! March and Rally could be just about anything, but it's mostly about urging the Legislature to do the right thing. The plan is to gather at City Creek Park and march to the Federal Building, where there will be speakers on a number of urgent issues. Organizers don't want to focus on impeachment or specifically the Women's March, but they do encourage signs like "Grab 'em by the Midterms." There are plenty of reasons to rally and chant. Whatever your cause, this march is for you. City Creek Park, 110 N. State, Saturday, Jan. 27, noon-2 p.m., free, bit.ly/2mQRqoW.

Lobby Training
In case you didn't notice, the Legislature is in session and this means you need to get your head out of the sand and pay attention. The ACLU Utah, EU and PPAU Community Lobby Training will get you ready to meet head-on potential upcoming legislation related to civil liberties, reproductive freedom and equality. Presenters will share tips on how to get involved in the legislative process and how to make your voice heard amid the din of lobbyists. This is how to become a community advocate and make a difference for the causes you believe in. Salt Lake Public Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-521-9862, Wednesday, Jan. 31, 6-9 p.m., free, bit.ly/2ERreBG.

Action Utah
And don't forget Action Utah's Weekly Lobby Day at the State Capitol. You can get updated every week during the legislative session and continue to learn how to advocate for the policies you care about. Utah State Capitol, 350 N. State, Seagull Room, Tuesday, Jan. 30, 12:30-2 p.m., free, bit.ly/2DgR69E.
