Dave Pacheco of Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA), a non-partisan, non-profit organization working full time to defend Utah's redrock wilderness.
Dec. 2: Protest: Don’t Let Utah Make Another Monumental Mistake in Court, 6:00-7:30 p.m. at Utah State Capitol Rotunda, 350 N. State St., SLC. Event by Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition: “The state of Utah intends on spending millions of taxpayer dollars to pursue a lawsuit over the restoration of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments. You’re invited to join tribal leaders and the conservation community to protest this out-of-touch lawsuit pursued by Utah Governor Cox and Attorney General Reyes. This protest is about more than showing support for our national monuments. It’s about standing for tribal sovereignty. We will rise as allies to the tribes who have consistently stood up for these landscapes despite being ignored by condescending Utah politicians. Please attend to show the Governor and Attorney General that spending millions of your tax dollars on efforts that re-open wounds of the past is unacceptable. This protest is indoors—please wear a mask.”
Meisei Gonzalez of HEAL Utah, which earlier this week announced its "Free Fare for Clean Air" partnership to combat this winter's inversion season. In partnership with the Utah State Legislature, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR), and The Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah), the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) will offer Free Fare for Clean Air days this upcoming winter inversion to combat bad air quality days.
The fare will be free on all UTA bus and rail services, including the Ski Bus, paratransit, the Park City-SLC Connect, and UTA's On-Demand micro-transit service in southwestern Salt Lake County.
