Good film makes better humans: Russell Roots, community outreach manager for the Utah Film Center, sent us the post-film panel discussion he led after a Juneteenth screening of Nationtime. It was a report on the National Black Political Convention held in Gary, Indiana, in 1972. Panelists included:
Maria Montes of Comunidades Unidas with details on local fasters for immigration reform. Click here to see/sign their petition urging Sen. Mitt Romney to do his part to pass immigration reform for essential workers.
Joe Taylor, a transportation planner with Salt Lake City, which is kicking off a city-wide master plan called Connect SLC. The initiative will shape transportation policy through the next decade. The city is also recruiting for a Community Advisory Council to help guide the process. Details about the project, including the Community Advisory Council application and benefits (the project is paying councilmembers $32 an hour for their time) can be found at Connect SLC – Transportation Master Plan | Transportation.
