Utah Recycling Alliance, Chili Affair, and the annual SlutWalk

RECYCLING EVENT
Got junk? Not just any junk, but things that are hard to recycle and can't be put in those blue recycling bins? Salt Lake City residents can get rid of these items at Utah Recycling Alliance's upcoming event, CHaRMS, which stands for "Collection of Hard-to-Recycle Materials." The idea is to put these used items to good use by giving them a second life. Instead of throwing them in the landfill, you can help local re-purposing, recycling and reuse industries to thrive. There are demonstrations and repair workshops, too. Vendors accept a wide array of items, from books and car-seats to tires and Styrofoam. 352 W. 900 South, 435-659-1117, Saturday, Sept. 24, 8 a.m.-noon, free, open to public, UtahRecyclingAlliance.org

CHILI AFFAIR
The Road Home, the largest homeless shelter in Utah, needs your help. That's what The Great Salt Lake Chili Affair is all about—fundraising for the homeless. Local restaurants provide all kinds of chili, bread and desserts, while games and other activities keep your little ones busy. There is also a silent auction, which includes a trip to Chicago. Salt Palace Convention Center, Exhibit Hall 5, 100 S. West Temple, 801-819-7296, Wednesday, Sept. 28, 5:30-9 p.m., $42 per person, $300 for a table of 8, children 12 and under free, TheRoadHome.org

THE WALK OF NO SHAME
Maybe you've protested before—for clean air, or Medicaid expansion. This time, you can make a statement during the annual SlutWalk, a march against sexual assault, victim-blaming, slut-shaming and rape culture in general. Given the angst surrounding BYU's Honor Code, this walk to the Capitol takes on real significance to drive change. Speakers incude local comedians and slam poets, as well as Mayor Jackie Biskupski and Rep. Angela Romero, who will talk about local politics and how you can make a difference in your community this election year. "The Walk of No Shame" is Salt Lake City's chapter of the international movement SlutWalk, which aims to strike down the stigma that survivors of sexual assault or violence somehow deserved it because of their appearance. Salt Lake City and County Building, north steps, 385-202-3538, Saturday, Sept. 24, noon-3 p.m., free, Facebook.com/SlutWalkSLC
