Women's Rally
Celebrate International Women's Day at a peaceful rally with attitude, sponsored by KRCL 90.9 FM. You can hear stories from guest speakers and look back at the achievements and political legacies of women who paved the way. The goal is to encourage more women to run for office, to vote and to support important legislation. "In honor of the vibrant and bold women throughout history who have championed equal rights, we invite women and allies throughout Utah to wear bold and bright colors, bring signs of unity and support and join us for a rally to Amplify Women's Voices," according to the event's website. There will be a musical performance at noon. Utah State Capitol Rotunda, 350 N. State, 801-363-1818, Thursday, March 8, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/amplifyingwomensvoices.

Public Lands Lecture
You've heard it before: We've got to "take back our lands." As part of the Wallace Stegner Center symposium on Public Lands in the Changing West, you can hear the other side from John Leshy, an expert in public lands, water and other natural resources issues as well as constitutional law. Leshy, who's writing a political history of America's public lands, will talk about Debunking the Creation Myths of America's Public Lands. "We must embrace large federal landholdings as a shared patrimony—a precious heritage which binds us to our ancestors and which we, in turn, hold in trust for future generations," he says. S.J. Quinney College of Law Moot Courtroom, Level 6, 383 S. University St., 801-585-3440, Wednesday, March 14, 12:15-1:15 p.m., free, bit.ly/2FNBnRu.

Curtis Town Hall
Do you feel disenfranchised by the curious gerrymandering that has placed southern Utah and Salt Lake County in Rep. John Curtis' district? Come to Curtis' Sandy Town Hall where he promises to answer any and all questions. "I said I'd reinvent town halls, and I intend to! Come and experience a different approach to citizen engagement," he says. "As always, you can ask me anything!" Sandy City Hall, 10000 S. Centennial Parkway, 801-922-5400, Saturday, March 10, 10 a.m.-noon, free, bit.ly/2tbPNZa.
