Utah Clean Air



No, it's not January, so you probably think air quality is just fine. Take a deep breath, and join all the efforts on clean air now. Utah Clean Air has a July challenge you can join to learn about using electric tools, taking transit and more. Also, think about going to one of several Clean Air Community Meetings, being sponsored by HEAL Utah, Utah Moms for Clear Air and the Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment. This problem won't fix itself. Learn how you can help. Provo City Library, 550 N. University Ave., 801-355-5055, Monday, Aug. 1, 6 p.m.; Weber County Library Southwest Branch, 2039 W. 4000 South, Roy, 801-355-5055, Tuesday, Aug. 2, 6 p.m., free, HealUtah.org

You don't need to be a member of the Coalition of Religious Communities to find out What Next on Medicaid Expansion in Utah and how to move it along. Before the November elections, you will want to see where the candidates for governor and other state offices stand on the issue. CORC, a coalition of 15 different religious communities, can help you during these final three months. One of CORC's priorities this year is to expand Medicaid to cover parents (and others) living under the poverty level, so that medical emergencies don't lead to families becoming homeless. St. Mark's Cathedral, 231 E. 100 South, 801-364-7765, Thursday, Aug. 4, 8:30-9:30 a.m., free, Home.Utah.edu/~u0371791/CUC/CORC.html

Looking for something to do on a hot summer night? You and your family can help celebrate 100 years of Utah's beautiful Captiol building by attending a free summer movie event—Disney's recently remade classic, Cinderella. During Movie Under the Stars, you can listen to a local band and partake in food available for purchase. Or you can bring your own picnic. Hey, even pets are allowed, but be sure to clean up after them. You'll need your own blankets and chairs because, well, it's a picnic! Utah State Capitol, 2350 N. State, 801-410-0011, Friday, July 29, 7:30-11 p.m., free, bit.ly/2a6fU8G
