Activism ain’t always about picket lines and angry fist-shaking. Take, for example, this week’s marathon of prayer for the simple cause of compassion. Or, for a little female empowerment, how about a talk from the CEO of Utah Girl Scouts? For something a little more hands-on, you can take part in a Life on State public workshop, exploring the vision for the renaissance of State Street.

Third Annual Prayers for Compassion
Thursday, July 2-Sunday, July 5

Some issues by definition don’t really polarize—example, increasing happiness and decreasing suffering. Unless you’re a hater, of course. In which case, quit hating, man. To really feel the love, why not check out the Utah Urgyen Samteng Ling temple’s 67 hours of prayer and meditation for the relief of suffering for all? It’s open and welcome to all, but donations are welcomed, and suggested at about $1 per 100 mantras.
Urgyen Samteng Ling Tibetan Buddhist Temple, 740 S. 300 West, July 2-5, 7 p.m., 801-328-4629, RedLotus@redlotus.cnc.ne

Finding the Woman’s Voice
Sunday, July 5
Elaine Gause, CEO of the Utah Girl Scouts, will give a talk about the future of women in leadership roles. Gause will discuss the potential of female collaborative leadership as a new frontier in the development of society—an area where women find their voices and do it together.
First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, 569 S. 1300 East, July 5, 10 a.m., 801-582-7783, JMG@csolutions

Life on State Public Workshop
Wednesday, July 8

State Street, the artery of life that crosses seven cities in the county is looking for a little help planning the future of the road and the communities that support it. This public workshop, put on by a multicity partnership, along with UDOT and UTA, gives citizens the chance to stake their claim in the street’s future. So, if you want to get in on the vision, you’d better show up.
Jordan High School, 95 E. Beetdigger Blvd., Sandy, July 8, 6 p.m. LifeOnState.org
