GUNS AND LILIES
Are you and your children safe—from themselves? In every state, suicides account for the highest number of gun-related deaths. Maybe not so coincidentally, suicides are most common in states with small populations—perhaps because of isolation. Last year, 60% of gun deaths by adults were suicides. 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, squ.re/2JzUP7A

CLIMATE CHANGELINGS
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. Teens Talk: Climate Change Panel is one in a series where teenagers present and lead discussions—this one on climate change and environmentalism. The second—Clean Energy Forum—brings leaders from the nonprofit, business and government sectors who must collaborate on the path to clean energy. They will speak about getting to 100% renewable energy by 2030. Teens: Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Saturday, Nov. 9, 3-5 p.m., free, bit.ly/2N1rsx4. Forum: Marmalade Library, 280 W. 500 North, Saturday, Nov. 9, 1-3 p.m., free, bit.ly/2C2dRPD
