Project Rainbow's TDoR Memorial is on display at the City-County Building through Monday to honor and remember the transgender victims of violence in 2022. Look for the display of flags, with the names of each victim, on the west side of the City-County Building, 451 S. State St., SLC.

Lake Effect with Lila, a junior high student in Houston: "The strangest thing about floating in the Great Salt Lake, it feels almost like a secret, was that I almost felt dead, in a good way. The weightlessness, the white mist, the silence in the air and the silence in my head. And strangely it comforted me, made me less afraid of death."
Lake Effect is part of the Great Salt Lake Collaborative, a solutions journalism initiative that partners news, education and media organizations, including KRCL, to help inform people about the plight of the Great Salt Lake—and what can be done to make a difference before it is too late.
