INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY RALLY
Look around. So many of the struggles around the world are related to feminist issues. And it's not like the men in charge are going to solve the problem. Women are demanding good-paying jobs, housing, reproductive-health care, education, amnesty for all immigrants and an end to violence. Int'l Women's Day Rally—Unite & Fight! is as much an anti-Donald Trump rally as it is a feminist and working class battleground. "Every progressive reform for women's rights has been won through mass mobilization. Building a grassroots movement independent from the two parties who uphold the status quo of racism, war and inequality is an essential task for genuine women's liberation," the event's Facebook page says. State Capitol, 350 N. State, 801-508-4371, Friday, March 8, 5:30-6:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2SANJRZ.

CITIZEN LOBBYING WORKSHOP
This is it! The Legislature is wrapping up one of its most astounding sessions. Take this chance to join the Citizen Lobbying Workshop with the Utah Rivers Council and Utah Chapter Sierra Club before it's too late. You'll learn about all the important environment-related bills and participate in a quick lobbying 101 training before you head out to engage with our state lawmakers. The news is not all bad. There have been some hopeful bills this session, and you can make an impact on the good and the bad, including public lands, nuclear waste and air quality legislation. State Capitol, 350 N. State, State Office Building B110 (basement), Monday, March 11, 1-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2NA86xO.

RESISTANCE ORGANIZING
Have you ever felt disenfranchised or simply unable to make a difference? Now is the time to take direct action for critical social, economic, racial and climate-change issues. Still, you have to start somewhere. Join the first community Civil Riot Meeting, which organizers hope will begin a dialogue to form strong relationships and create a collective of strong and willing participants. Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, 385-256-5248, Thursday, March 14, 7-8:45 p.m., free, bit.ly/2H8gkfq.
