STAND AGAINST RACISM
This panel discussion about "Women of Color Who Inspired or Influenced You" is part of a signature campaign of YWCA USA to build community among those who work for racial justice and to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in communities. Stand Against Racism continues through Sunday, April 30, and includes an essay contest with a $500 prize. YWCA Utah Center for Families, 322 E. 300 South, 801-537-8604, Thursday, April 27, 7 p.m. free, registration required, bit.ly/2oZPg6P

CLIMATE MARCH
Guess what the Trump administration ignores most. Yes, it's that pesky scientific phenomenon called climate change. The Utah People's Climate March stands with the worldwide march marking the president's 100th day in office. His policies have already targeted public lands and monuments, the EPA, climate data from government websites and climate change committees. Come march to the Governor's Mansion on South Temple, especially for those indigenous and minority communities that depend on the environment in their daily lives. Salt Lake City Library Square, 210 E. 400 South, 801-467-9294, Saturday, April 29, 1-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2pZwnAv

NO TO TRUMP'S AGENDA
For years, May Day has been kind of an afterthought. This year, you can rally for a cause—against the Trump agenda of deportation, war and attacks on working people. May Day—International Workers Day—has its origins in the United States during the 19th-century struggle for an eight-hour work day. May Day goes beyond social revolution, seeking change in the economic structure of capitalism. But this year, No to Trump's Agenda is all about the Orange One. Wallace Bennett Federal Building, 125 S. State, Monday, May 1, 7-9 p.m., free, bit.ly/2pm0RQJ
