MARCH FOR SCIENCE

We're learning what "winning" is like in America and apparently it's a loss for science. If you believe in the worth of scientific exploration, then join this international movement in support of science. Utah is participating in the massive March for Science demonstration, which includes at least 100 scientific organizations concerned about the future of science under the Trump administration. Marches are set for Washington, D.C., and 400 other locations. This is a nonpartisan event to urge elected leaders to remember the role science plays in our society and to support scientific innovation. City Creek Park, 125 Frankford Ave., Saturday, April 22, 3-6 p.m., free, bit.ly/2piiSfx; bit.ly/2pi3rnw

REAL WOMEN RUN
You have a choice: stay at home, bake more bread and clean the kitchen—or run for office. Utah started out right. In 1896, Martha Hughes Cannon became the first woman in the nation elected to serve as a state senator. Women are still politically active. Slightly more women than men vote in Utah, but so few take up the banner of candidacy. No women serve in statewide executive offices—because none were nominated in 2016. Change the course now at the Real Women Run Spring Training. Learn about messaging and the media, research, demographics and the all-important fundraising aspect of running for office. Thomas S. Monson Center, 411 E. South Temple, Saturday, April 22, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., $15 (includes lunch), bit.ly/2ouMczg

Q-TALKS
If you thought the world was coming to terms with the LGBTQ community, you might want to look at what the Trump administration has in mind. Equality Utah's Q-Talks is at fast-paced one-hour lecture with four people teaching 15-minute segments. You can learn the latest on trans activism, get legislative updates from the Utah statehouse and hear about queer history and reproductive justice from instructors Lucas Fowler, Connell O'Donovan, Clifford Rosky and Liz Owens. Salt Lake City Public Library, 210 E. 400 South, Wednesday, April 26, 7-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2ouJ46N

STAND AGAINST RACISM
Attend a panel discussion about the theme "Women of Color Who Inspired or Influenced You." YWCA Utah, 322 E. 300 South, Thursday, April 27, 7-8:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2pB7j2u
