Interim Session Tours of the State Capitol – Every month,  7:45-8:15a

Join Action Utah leaders and members for a tour of the State Capitol and explanation of Interim Session, the state legislature and community lobbying at the Capitol. No experience necessary. This is a great window into how our legislative branch works and how to impact it. Interested members may choose to stay and sit in on a public committee meeting of their choice (we highly recommend this!). Meet in the cafeteria on the ground floor of the Senate building (east side of Capitol Campus). If you want to skip the tour and just join us for Interim committee meetings, meet us by the fountain in the central courtyard at 8:15a. Upcoming dates:

  • These events will return once Interim Sessions begin again in May, 2018.

Living Room Conversations – ongoing

Action Utah is traveling around the state to meet with small groups of ordinary Utahns and discuss how our political system works in Utah, how ordinary people can impact it, and how Action Utah can help you have a voice in the policymaking that affects your lives. We meet with neighborhood groups, book clubs, action groups, bible studies, senior groups, community groups and groups of friends and family. See our Living Room Conversations brochure.
