Citizen Revolt: Nov. 7

Learn about upcoming legislation to prevent gun violence. Choose from one of two upcoming climate change events. Plus, check out this year's Genderevolution conference.



Are you and your children safe—from themselves? In every state, suicides account for the highest number of gun-related deaths.

At its November luncheon, the Women's Democratic Club of Utah presents Addressing the Gun Violence Epidemic, literally a life-and-death discussion. Rep. Joel Briscoe, D-Salt Lake City, Mary Ann Thompson with Moms Demand Action, and a representative from the Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah discuss upcoming legislation. Sheraton Hotel, 150 W. 500 South, Saturday, Nov. 9, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m., $15-30,

Is climate on your mind? Are you coughing, wheezing or just disgusted by the lack of action? You can choose from two climate events, one from those activist teens and the other from the experts.

They will speak about getting to 100% renewable energy by 2030.
