Korea's Future—And Ours
With the whiplash negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea, no one knows whether nuclear war is on the horizon. Get a better understanding of the region and its bumpy relationship with the United States at Future of Korea. While there will be no talk of Little Rocket Man or Dotard, experts will discuss "political, security, economic and financial issues within the Korean Peninsula and how they pertain to U.S.-Korean relations," the event's Facebook page says. And you might just find out what our future holds, too, in this rocky relationship. Jewett Center for the Performing Arts, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, 801-832-3270, Thursday, June 7, 7-8:30 p.m., free/registration required, bit.ly/2LdFIiB.

How To Welcome New Americans
Join KRCL 90.9 FM and the University of Utah in discussions about immigration and welcoming newcomers to your neighborhood. At Breaking Fast Together in the Month of Ramadan, you'll take part in a community iftar bringing Muslims and non-Muslims together for a shared meal. "The U.S. is home to nearly 34 million lawful immigrants and another 11 million people who are undocumented," the website says. A panel discussion will help you understand the commonalities that undergird all people, and celebrate our differences. Marmalade Library, 280 W. 500 North, Saturday, June 9, 5-9 p.m., free, bit.ly/2kDwVLw.

March For Children
Confused about where 1,500 immigrant children have gone? You're not the only one. Whether or not you support deportation, you should stand up for the rights of families and recognize the inherent risks of separating children from their guardians. See this effort for what it is: a draconian fear tactic to dissuade illegal immigration. It has shown the United States to be nothing short of the Evil Empire. Not all of these children are "missing," though some have fallen into the hands of human traffickers because of the new "100 percent policy," criminalizing all who come into the country without documentation. Join the dissenting hoards around the nation at SLC: Where Are the Children to find a more humane path for children. Wallace Bennett Federal Building, 125 S. State, Thursday, June 14, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2J7woMv.
