Bears Ears Celebration
Here's your chance to sit down with tribal leaders to hear the story of Bears Ears and why it's so deeply spiritual to Native Americans. At the Lummi Bear Totem Reception, the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coaltion will welcome a gift of a bear totem from the Lummi Nation. "Tribal leaders will speak to the importance of unity and healing in our work to protect ancestral lands," according to the event's Facebook page. Bring food to share and dine with the people who want to protect this stunning and meaningful national monument. The Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake, 120 W. 1300 South, 801-486-4877, Thursday, July 19, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2JfW88B.

Meet To Stop Police Brutality
What does community mean to you? Is it OK for police to target immigrants, African Americans, Native Americans—or you? At We Demand Protection, We Demand Control, you'll hear strategies and ideas for legislation to help stop racial profiling and police brutality. If you think the violence needs to end now and that police officers should be held accountable, then join the movement. "We won't allow police who target the black and brown people of our communities to remain unaccountable," the event's Facebook page says. "We won't allow police who abuse their power to remain unaccountable. We won't allow police to continue policing themselves. The violence ends now." Salt Lake City and County Building, 451 S. State, Saturday, July 21, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2N8doz5.

Medicaid Pamphleting
Oh yes, your pennywise state government just can't bring itself to scoop up $800 million in federal Medicaid funds because, you know, you can't be sure it will last. If you're wondering what in the world they're thinking, so are a majority of Utahns who will be voting in November to expand health care coverage to more than 150,000 needy patients and their families. Now, Utah Decides Healthcare—the initiative to let you vote on Medicaid expansion—is looking for volunteers to wear "Yes on 3" T-shirts and pass out stickers and fliers at the Pioneer Day Parade with Utah Decides. This is a great way to show your activism for an issue that is literally a matter of life and death. Liberty Park, 600 E. 900 South, 801-718-6130, Tuesday, July 24, 8 a.m.-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2NMjQNp.
