School To Prison Symposium
What is your role in the lives of American public school students—the ones who are marginalized and at risk? The 3rd annual Breaking the Pipeline Symposium will look at what's happening to students today in an increasingly violent world, and study possible ways to help teachers, administrators, social workers, juvenile justice practitioners and legal practitioners. The symposium will also look at recent legislation, liquor laws, driver license requirements, conduct and discipline. In other words, what is it that the system can do to discourage the over-criminalization of youth? S.J. Quinney College of Law, Level 6, 383 S. University St., 801-585-3479, Saturday, March 31, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., $25, bit.ly/2FYdbPP.

March Against Sexual Violence
Students are not only speaking out and demanding action on issues other than gun violence. In Take Back the Night!, they are homing in on sexual violence, which disproportionately impacts women of color, trans and queer folks, and young people, say organizers from the University of Utah and Westminster College. You will hear personal stories during an open mic session, when you, too, can share your experiences. The march will travel from the U to Westminster's Bassis Lounge. University of Utah, 201 S. Presidents Circle, Thursday, April 5,6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2DPjEXA.

Rally Against Police Brutality
There seems to be an epidemic of out-of-control police officers. In Utah, three well-publicized acts of police violence have occurred in the past few weeks. Rally Against Utah Police Violence! Community Control Now! is seeking answers and demanding action. "Federal agents are killing people in Sandy. West Valley officers are shooting teenagers and illegally entering homes to harass families. And these cops are still getting paid, still being protected by politicians who don't care about the victims of police brutality," say organizers who have seen a troubling trend of trigger-happy law enforcement officers. West Valley City Police Department, 3575 S. Market St., West Valley City, Thursday, March 29, 6-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2HZ3XPU.
