Give 'em Hell
Had a bad year, have you? Or was it exceptionally good? KRCL's RadioActive is opening its Creative Lab so you can take the mic and tell them your plans, fears and hopes for 2018. What did you learn from 2017? That's a loaded question, but one that needs airing on Give KRCL's RadioActive a Piece of Your Mind. Do you agree or disagree with the affirmation, "The U.S.A. is the world champion of extreme inequality?" Check out bit.ly/2Cgro4i to read the full statement on extreme poverty and human rights from United Nations Special Rapporteur Philip Alston. This is your chance to vent. Don't miss it. Salt Lake City Library main floor, 210 E. 400 South, Saturday, Jan. 6, 10 a.m.-2 pm., free and open to public, bit.ly/2zMz7FF.

Legislative Previews
Steel yourselves. The Utah Legislature is just around the corner and that means a host of curious bills are coming your way. However, there are ways to prepare. Some might be interested in learning about the legislative process at the Me4U (Multicultural Engagement 4 Utah) Legislative Summit, where you can brainstorm ideas for the session. With a few tricks of the trade, it might be easier than you think to advance policy agendas. Alternatively, you might want to join the Annual Legislative Forum of the Salt Lake chapters of the American Association of University Women and League of Women Voters featuring four state lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. Me4U—County Council Chambers, 2001 S. State, Room N1100, 206-356-6836, Saturday, Jan. 6, 10 a.m.-noon, free, bit.ly/2EbcPkb. Forum, Girl Scouts of Utah, 445 E. 4500 South, 801-272-8683, Saturday, Jan. 6, 9:30-11:30 a.m., free, bit.ly/2CjPlc6.

Cyber-Lobbying
The Utah Legislature has updated its massive website just in time for the 2018 session. Get comfortable with it so you too can lobby from home. "You will learn how to read the many helpful calendars (weekly and monthly) on the website, where to find live streaming audio of committee hearings (if you can't get away from work!), how to contact your representatives (or even find out WHO represents you), how to translate the 'reading calendars' for the House and Senate (and watch live video of the proceedings!), and much more," event organizers for CyberLobbying 101 Workshop: Learning to Use le.Utah.gov say. Reserve your space ahead of time and bring a laptop. ACLU of Utah, 355 N. 300 West, 801-521-9862, Tuesday, Jan. 9, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2DtAJGq.
