Multicultural Youth Day
This annual event comes at a particularly poignant time—following the tragic school shootings in Parkland, Fla., and just before the Legislature adjourns for the year—probably without addressing gun control. Hosted by the Utah Office of Multicultural Affairs, Multicultural Youth Leadership Day at the Capitol 2018, wants students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and others to understand the importance of the legislative process and how becoming informed citizens can change their lives and the communities in which they live. Think about it: guns for teachers and in schools. These are the issues you can influence. Utah State Capitol, 350 N. State, 801-245-7210, Wednesday, March 7, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2ENdnB3.

Feminists Unite
Yes, there are still feminists in the world—and they're mad as hell. As part of Women's History Month, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and the City Library are offering a community dialogue "around gender, activism, and art." Feminists Unite! Building Community through Art & Activism will offer sessions led by artists and educators, and opportunities to make art yourself or tell your story. They will also be taking ideas for a community mural to be created in April. Best yet, you will hear about how you can make feminism a part of your life. Sugar Space Arts Warehouse 132 S. 800 West, 801-581-7332, Wednesday, March 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2EORSvG.

Going Beyong Tokenism
Yes, this month is all about women, but it's also about all kinds of women in all walks of life and how they influence society, not to mention the history of our nation. Beyond Tokenism: Centering Women in our Histories of the Nation will delve into the domestic and public work of women and their contributions to social institutions. "It gives us a truer picture of the nation's history, in all of its conflict, change, and complexity," organizers say. This free lecture will be given by R. Marie Griffith, director of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics, and the editor of the Center's journal, Religion & Politics. J. Willard Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium, Level 1, 295 S. Campus Drive, 801-581-8558, Thursday, March 8, 7-9 p.m., free, bit.ly/2E6Gef9.
