And this year, the Walk of No Shame focuses on justice, which can only be defined through the lenses of survivors themselves. "For some, this means using the justice system with results," the event's Facebook page says. "For others, justice may be much more personal. We will address how justice is not one size fits all, with personal stories and educational speakers." Make a poster and bring a sign to walk from Washington Square to the Utah Capitol and send a message to legislators. Washington Square, 451 S. State, Saturday, Sept. 28, noon-2 p.m., free,

As part of Climate Week, the Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah), Torrey House Press and Black Diamond are sponsoring an interactive climate change discussion—titled Where Will the Snow Go?—that you won't want to miss, especially if you're an outdoor enthusiast.

Panelists, including winter sports athlete Angel Collinson, tell attendees how they can make a difference in the fight against climate change. A state legislator will also be present to answer questions. Black Diamond headquarters, 2084 E. 3900 South, Monday, Sept. 30, 6-8 p.m., free,

If you live in Millcreek, Cottonwood Heights or Sandy, you won't want to miss this chance to hear about the challenges we face to clean the air.

At Mayors' Town Hall—For Stewardship of the Air and Climate, mayors are joined by professors of atmospheric science and environmental law, so you know you can hear facts as well as opinions. You get some of both from the student activists who are participating, too. The discussion is followed by a Q&A. Albion Middle School, 2755 E. 8890 South, Sandy, Thursday, Oct. 3, 6:30-8 p.m., free,
