SIGN UP TODAY: The Utah House Democratic Caucus will hold one-on-one sessions with the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, December 5, but you need to sign up now to reserve a spot at the State Capitol for Big Block of Cheese Day! Ask questions directly of your representatives, share with them your thoughts, and get to know who really speaks for you and your issues. Snack on some cheese and get some good time in with elected officials whose goals are to find out more about you! Website: utbigblockofcheese.eventbrite.com.

Friday, Nov. 20: Solidarity march and open forum on race at the University of Utah. Gather at the Park Building at noon, move together to the Student Union Ballroom for a dialogue on racial climate on campus, in the classroom, in our daily lives.

Saturday, Nov. 21: Utah Rally for Love, Equality, Family & Acceptance rally at the Utah State Capitol at 12 p.m. Ralliers will walk from the capitol to the LDS Church Office building in an attempt to form a human circle, holding hands, uniting one, around it.

Saturday, Nov. 21: Frank Cordova Latino Community Turkey Drive culminates today, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Bennion Elementary School, 429 S. 800 E., SLC.  **This year the drive cannot accept actual frozen Turkeys before November 21 due to a lack of freezer storage space, so please consider a financial donation.**   What started out, more than a decade ago, as a food drive in the Latino community of west Salt Lake City, has grown into an annual event that has fed thousands of families across the Salt Lake Valley. Although Latino community leaders gather the turkeys, they are distributed through participating Title 1 elementary schools and other community organizations without regard to race or ethnicity.

Instruction takes place in small groups (2-4 people per group). Lessons are mainly competency-based, with a focus on life-skills rather than grammar rules.
