SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS 5K
The Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA) hosts the 2017 Fearless 5K recognizing Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Stunning statistics show that one in eight women, and one in 50 men, will be raped in Utah in their lifetimes. In its third year, the 5K raises critical funds to support the life-changing work of UCASA and serves as a source of inspiration and hope for advocates and survivors of sexual assault. If you care about ending sexual violence, you can run the 5K in-person or virtually. Memory Grove Park, 300 North Canyon Road, 801-746-0404, Saturday, May 6, 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m., $35, ucasa.org

UNITED WE STAND (UP!)
If the current political climate has you feeling tense, you might want to blow off some steam at this comedy fundraiser. We have plenty to deride in Utah, where the supermajority includes not only the GOP, but also a particular church. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams invites everyone—Democrats, Republicans, comedians, elected officials and normal folks, too—to come together and let loose at United We Stand (Up!). He's asking you to suffer through stand-up comedy routines by him and some other sorry elected officials at their fifth annual event. Rail Event Center on 235 N. 500 West, 801-419-0320, Thursday, May 11, 6:30-9 p.m., $50, bit.ly/2p9rLdv

BREATHE UTAH
While the EPA is busy writing up a plan to trash the Obama-era greenhouse gas rules, you might have a chance to speak out. The president (you know, of the United States) wrote one of his many, many executive orders telling EPA-buster Scott Pruitt to "seek input on regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification." So the only question is: Do you like to breathe? The federal comment period for Executive Order 13777 ends on Monday, May 15. The new rules are supposed to promote energy independence and economic growth. There's nothing about promoting life. You may submit comments via email, docket or snail mail. Office of Policy Regulatory Reform, Mail Code 1803A, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., 20460; laws-regs@epa.gov, Monday, May 15, bit.ly/2ptRWvY
