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:

  • Wednesday, November 15th (last Interim Session of the year!) – RSVP here

WORKSHOP: Wednesday, November 8th in Salt Lake City

How To Write An Effective Letter to the Editor (LTE) – November 8, 7:00-8:30pm. Get practical tips on how to write and submit LTEs to your local papers to draw attention to the issues you care about, plus talking points on 2-3 current issues that need community member support. Participants will draft LTEs on site and receive critique on a few examples written by the group. RSVP here.

LOCATION: Conf. Room B, Marmalade Branch Library, 280 W 500 North, Salt Lake City, 84103

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. Would you be interested in having us come speak with your group? Contact us!
