Sing in Solidarity
Has it been a little quiet lately? Not enough to protest? Well, you need to flex your vocal cords for a flash mob singing "I Can't Keep Quiet" at the Pride Festival March and Rally. That's the iconic song from the January Women's March, and communities across the nation plan to sing it again, so start practicing now. It's all happening at the 9th & 9th Pride Rally and Solidarity/Allies March, but that's just the beginning, leading up to the national march in Washington, D.C., at 10 a.m. EDT (8 a.m. MDT) on Sunday, June 11. Start at 900 E. 900 South, end at 300 E. 500 South, 801-997-9763, Friday, June 2, 5-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2rGORtZ

MARCH FOR TRUTH
You know, that "truth" thing has been missing in political discourse. Sad. You can be alarmed about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, but we need answers. What about the relationship between Russia and Donald Trump, or his associates and his campaign? The legitimacy of the U.S. government might hinge on the answers. But there's a whole lot of #fakenews out there muddying the waters. Across the nation, the March for Truth is a peaceful way of asking Congress to conduct independent investigations and release the information to the public. Wallace Bennett Federal Building, 125 S. State, Saturday, June 3, 1-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2qnqY6R

ELECTION IN A PLAY
Now here's an idea: Listen to each other. A series of five-minute plays by Utah playwrights as part of Plan-B's Script-in-Hand Series, is an unique response to the 2016 election and the division and partisanship it has spawned. People increasingly feel their voices are being ignored. (in)divisible offers 24 five-minute plays based around real-world experiences with equal parts liberal and conservative—all without mentioning, you know, politicians by name. If you're sick of being sick, this is not to be missed. Studio Theatre at Rose Wagner, 138 W. 300 South, 801-297-4200, June 8-18 (Thursday-Friday, 8 p.m.; Saturday, 4 & 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.), free, bit.ly/2r5PzAl
