Utah is one of the most welcoming states to refugees. Come listen to An Evening of Refugee Stories and Songs. Let Me Tell You My Story, compiled by the nonprofit group Their Story is Our Story, is a collection of first-person accounts which promises to inspire and motivate change. You'll enjoy music from China, Syria, Mexico and India as well as a multi-media presentation. You'll also hear from the International Rescue Committee, Catholic Charity Services and spokesperson Melissa Dalton-Bradford, author and international TSOS refugee advocate. Main Library Auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, Thursday, Oct. 4, 6:30-8 p.m., free,

This is the week to silence the climate deniers. To that end, more than two dozen organizations and businesses are presenting nearly 30 events from film screenings to art exhibits. Many already are sold out, showing just how many people want to take action. At The Three Tenors of Climate Change you'll hear climatologist Ben Santer talk about his work on global warming. Santer, a scientist from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will join Milwaukee-based filmmaker Chip Duncan and global health expert Hernando Garzon from California's Kaiser Permanente to discuss receding glaciers, global climate modeling and the long-term health consequences facing a warming world. "Using personal stories, long-term study and decades of documentation and participation, Santer, Duncan and Garzon have teamed up to bring their climate story to audiences across the U.S.," the event's Facebook page says. Salt Palace Convention Center, 100 S. West Temple, 385-468-2222, Thursday, Oct. 4, 7 p.m., free,

Never mind that Congress doesn't believe you, you know what you've been through. Art Therapy for Survivors of Sexual Abuse/Assault will help you process the trauma and visualize your emotions. "Participants will explore various art mediums individually and through a collective group experience. Participants will learn about intention, art-making and witness writing," the program's website says. This is a self-exploration because recovery is a personal journey. Art therapist Jill Johnson will lead you through this creative forum. Art Access, 230 S. 500 West, Ste. 125, 801-328-0703, Tuesdays through Nov. 2, 5:30-8 p.m., free,
