There is a deafening silence around questions of what is happening to indigenous women in the Intermountain and Southwest areas. Join this Discussion on Missing, and Murdered Indigenous Women during Native American Heritage Month to address the conditions that contribute to violence against women. "We seek to build relationships with tribal governments, municipal governments and state and federal officials to better understand the barriers that prevent us from being able to address the atrocities perpetrated against our indigenous women," the event's Facebook page says. Speakers with Peaceful Advocates for Native Dialogue and Organizing Support (PANDOS) facilitate the discussion. Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, 801-832-2814, Thursday, Nov. 29, 3-4 p.m., free,

Have you heard of the Emery County Public Land Management Act, yet another congressional attack on our wilderness? Join the Young Womxn Demonstration for the San Rafael Swell. Among the many concerns, the bill, sponsored by Rep. John Curtis and Sen. Orrin Hatch, leaves 900,000 acres of wilderness-quality lands unprotected, facilitates coal mining and conveys 10,000 acres of public land to the state, authorizing entrance fees and likely encouraging more crowding. "After speeches, rally participants will hand deliver a letter expressing our concerns as well as the postcards you all have signed within recent years to Gov. Gary Herbert asking him to be on the right side of history when it comes to protecting Utah's wild lands," the event's Facebook page says. State Capitol, South Steps, 350 N. State, Thursday, Dec. 6, 9:45 a.m.-noon, free,
