Anita @ Salt Lake City Library
Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm

An entire country watched transfixed as a poised, beautiful African-American woman in a blue dress sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men and with a clear, unwavering voice recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. That October day in 1991 Anita Hill, a bookish law professor from Oklahoma, was thrust onto the world stage and instantly became a celebrated, hated, venerated, and divisive figure.

Anita Hill’s graphic testimony was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual misconduct and power in the workplace that resonates still today. She has become an American icon, empowering millions of women and men around the world to stand up for equality and justice.

Against a backdrop of sex, politics, and race, ANITA reveals the intimate story of a woman who spoke truth to power. Directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Freida Mock, the film is both a celebration of Anita Hill’s legacy and a rare glimpse into her private life with friends and family, many of whom were by her side that fateful day 20 years ago.

Community Discussion Night: How to Protect Our Air, Land, and Water from Tar Sands Mining (and Refining), Together! @ Sprague Library
Aug 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Community Discussion Night: How to Protect Our Air, Land, and Water from Tar Sands Mining (and Refining), Together! @ Sprague Library

Join Peaceful Uprising for a community discussion on creating a just and healthy world by protecting our air from tar sands mining and refining. In Utah, tar sands mining could soon begin–for the first time in the U.S.–and the tar-like oil would be refined in North Salt Lake. Refining tar sands here would harm our air, and our health, even more than refining regular crude, making it a major climate justice issue. Join us to work on creating SOLUTIONS to this human health nightmare, while forging a resilient community that’s empowered to take action!

Can’t make it on August 28? Contact Melanie@PeacefulUprising to set up a discussion with your neighborhood or organization. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: The Summit @ Red Butte Amphitheatre

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: The Summit @ Red Butte Amphitheatre

Although K2 is only the second-highest peak in the world, it is renowned as the most dangerous and revered by mountaineers as their ultimate challenge.

In August 2008, 18 of 24 climbers reached the summit of K2. Forty-eight hours later, 11 people were dead. What happened on that fateful day has never been resolved. Utilizing found footage, interviews with survivors, and seamlessly realistic reenactments, The Summit zigzags back and forth in time, interweaving multiple narrative threads and piecing together events, hoping to solve the mystery of what actually happened on that day—the deadliest in mountain-climbing history. At the heart of the mystery is the story of Ger McDonnell, one extraordinary man who chose to risk his own life to save others. With the help of breathtaking cinematography by Robbie Ryan and Stephen O’Reilly, director Nick Ryan creates a tension-filled, experiential film that will have viewers on the edge of their seats.The Summit pits Man against Mother Nature in her most majestic and terrifying extreme.

This film screening is presented free to the public.
