In The Loop: 2/18/17. Civil Unrest Is The New Black

Cool events to check out from Feb. 19 to March 4.


I personally can't recall the last time I scanned through events and saw so many protests. Wait, yes I can: the last time we elected George W. Bush and everyone was pissed off at everything. It seems as if every single day has a new protest for something, which is really awesome to see everyone getting active and involved and making their voices heard. But you know what would look really awesome? If we all just did it at once and filled the streets to capacity. That would be a monumental occasion in SLC.

Before we all go organize our next round of protests, here's two weeks of events for you to check out in between them. But first, here's a teaser picture from last night's Gallery Stroll, which we'll talk about more later.
