This week, you can meet Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker over a cup of joe and talk city issues at a special event at the 9th & 9th Coffee Garden. Later this week, take part in the International Rescue Committee's Warm Welcome Winter Clothing Drive to help refugees in the valley prepare for winter. Later on, it's Interim day at the Legislature, and you won't want to miss a committee discussing police militarization in Utah.

Coffee With the Mayor
Saturday, Sept. 13

This weekend, you can down some caffeinated liquid courage and approach Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker to talk about city issues that might be bugging you, whether it's bike lanes or streetcars. Or, you can just toast a cappuccino to the mayor and learn more about his future plans for the capital city.
Coffee Garden, 878 E. 900 South, 801-547-2659, Sept. 13, 3-4 p.m., Mayor.SLCGov.com

Warm Welcome Winter Clothing Drive
Sept. 15-Oct. 15

Salt Lake County is home to thousands of refugees from all corners of the globe, and some locales from which refugees hail never experience the cold winters we have here in Utah. That's why the International Rescue Committee is looking for you to donate new and gently used winter clothes to help newly settled refugees. The IRC is looking for coats, gloves, mittens and other winter gear to be dropped off at its Salt Lake City headquarters, where you can also learn about other volunteer opportunities.
International Rescue Committee, 221 S. 400 West, 801-328-1091, Sept. 15-Oct. 15, Rescue.org/US-Program/US-Salt-Lake-City-UT

Legislative Interim Day
Wednesday, Sept. 17

The Hill will be busy today with the Law Enforcement & Criminal Justice Committee hearing from the ACLU of Utah about police militarization, while a Natural Resources, Environment & Agriculture Committee will talk extensively about the impact of federal-land ownership in the Beehive State. There will also be plenty of other committees to check out for a preview of the sausage-grinding to come in the 2015 session.
Utah Capitol, 350 N. State, 801-538-1029, Sept. 17, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Le.Utah.gov
