ARTS & HUMANITIES DEBATE
You can never get enough of hearing from the two contenders for Salt Lake City mayor. Check out the Arts & Humanities Debate, sponsored by the Utah Cultural Alliance, where Utah Sen. Luz Escamilla and Salt Lake City Councilwoman Erin Mendenhall share their view on supporting the underfunded arts community. This is another chance to meet the candidates and tell them your concerns. Moderated by KSL Channel 5's Amanda Dickson. Main Library Auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 5:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2kMhkgn.

ENERGY SUMMIT
There's just too much at stake to sit back and take it. The People's Energy Summit attempts to bring together diverse voices "to create a just transition toward a renewable and regenerative future," according to the event's website. This daylong forum includes keynote speakers as well as workshops designed to be participatory and educational. "We will get our hands dirty, using art and land-based solutions to connect with one another and our environment. While dreaming of a thriving future, we will address systemic injustices that place disproportionate risk on indigenous people, immigrants, refugees, and rural communities in a changing climate and economy," the website says. Forums include youth activism and faith-based community perspectives on stewardship. Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Saturday, Sept. 21, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., free, bit.ly/PeoplesEnergySummit.

The conference is sponsored by the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission and Rural Utah Projectto address national and state issues. Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn, National Redistricting Manager Dan Vicuna and other experts speak. University of Utah, S.J. Quinney College of Law, 383 S.
