Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

Equality is Not Enough: Building Equitable Communities/ Speaker Series 2019 @ S.J. Quinney College of Law
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Equality is Not Enough: Building Equitable Communities/ Speaker Series 2019 @ S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

We live in a world that is fundamentally inequitable. The question is, with so much work to be done to address rampant inequities, where do we begin? We can start by including more voices in the conversations. We can unpack and disrupt traditional ways of thinking. We can challenge institutions and devise new ways of viewing our world. And we can cultivate opportunities that enable all of us to thrive.

KUER, RadioWest, and United Way of Salt Lake present this year’s three-part Speaker Series which includes scholar cultural critic Wesley Morris (September 18th) and activist Brittany Packnett (October 23rd). Join us for these candid and focused discussions, as each speaker shares their ideas for working together to challenge systems of exclusion, marginalization, and oppression.

The Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Occupation and Combatting Violent Extremism @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Sep 19 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
The Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Occupation and Combatting Violent Extremism @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

America has become all too familiar with the impacts on human lives and communities of violent domestic extremism. One such incident occurred in 2016 when armed anti-federal government activists seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. While the international media focused on the very real prospect of mass carnage, far less attention was paid to the indispensable role of local citizens in bringing the standoff to a relatively nonviolent conclusion. Through decades-long investments in community building and collaborative problem-solving, Harney County citizens defeated the violent extremism that came uninvited into their community. This is a story that provides potentially valuable lessons as the nation struggles with violent domestic extremism today.

The Classical Greek Theatre Festival presents Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, translated by William Matthews, and directed by Emilio Casillas.
