INDIGENOUS WOMXN CONFERENCE
For generations, Native Americans have dealt with the hidden crisis of human trafficking within their communities. The Indigenous Womxn Matter: 2018 RAW Annual Conference on Human Trafficking works to build relationships and restore healing through discussions and presentations centered around the issues of domestic, sexual and dating violence. Sarah Deer, author of The Beginning and End of Rape: Confronting Sexual Violence in Native America is keynote speaker."Her work on violence against Native women has received national recognition from the American Bar Association and the Department of Justice. Professor Deer is also the chief justice for the Prairie Island Indian Community Court of Appeals," the event's page says. University of Utah Officers Club, 150 Fort Douglas Blvd., 801-561-7374, Saturday, Sept. 22, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2QuXlOk.

HISTORY CONFERENCE
Are you worried about the effects of unbridled development on transportation, the landscape and your life? The 66th Annual Utah History Conference: Transportation and Movement explores these issues as central to Utah history. "Movement can be seen ... as a way to evaluate change over space and time: the variation and transformation of the landscape, the flow of ideas and people into and out of the state, the mobility of groups and individuals, the development of transportation-related infrastructure, and the transportation and communication networks connecting the state to regional and national systems," the Utah State History website says. Registration closes Monday, Sept. 24. Rio Grande Depot, 300 S. Rio Grande St., 801-245-7226, Thursday, Sept. 27-Saturday, Sept. 29, free, bit.ly/2xfWvfs.

REFUGEE STORY
As the U.S. secures its borders and makes the path to asylum more difficult, if not impossible, there are stories that should be told. At Forced to Flee: A Refugee Journey, you can "experience the journey of a refugee as we guide you through the process of becoming a refugee and resettlement," according to Catholic Community Services. You will be guided through a mock refugee camp by former refugees with first-hand experience.More than 68.5 million people are forced to leave their homes because of persecution and conflict. Some 60,000 now live in Utah. Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main, 801-977-9119, Thursday, Sept. 27, 5-7:30 p.m., free/donations accepted, bit.ly/2CVNePL.
