HEAL Utah's Summer Street Party

RSVP: https://www.healutah.org/event/summerstreetparty/

Join HEAL Utah on Friday, July 19th for our Summer Street Party. We’ll be celebrating our dedicated volunteers while enjoying local food and delicious drinks, plus you'll have an opportunity to win some sweet swag. Never volunteered with us before? That’s okay! This party is for everyone - even your friends who haven’t heard of HEAL Utah before, so be sure to bring them! We’ll also be providing updates throughout the evening on our clean air, energy and climate, and radioactive waste work and giving you some opportunities to make a difference right there on the spot. The party runs from 5:30 - 9 PM. You may come and go anytime between then, but our brief program where we recognize some of our dedicated volunteers for their service, give a few campaign updates, and have a drawing for some gear will be from 7:30 - 8:00 PM. This event is free and is open to all ages.

Engagement Matters: Connecting With Your State Legislators

We are fortunate in Utah to have state legislators who are accessible and available to constituents. But who are they, what do they care about, how can you interact with them to have a voice in the issues and why does advocacy matter in Utah anyway? Join Action Utah and Park City area state legislators for a casual community conversation to: - Find out why engagement matters and what it can look like - Get insider tips on community advocacy from your elected officials - Meet your state legislators and learn about their priorities - Learn how you can have a voice in the issues that impact your life, family and community Guest Legislators: Sen. Allen Christensen (R-N. Ogden), Sen. Ron Winterton (R-Roosevelt), Rep. Brian King (D-SLC), Rep. Tim Quinn (R-Heber), Rep. Logan Wilde (R-Croydon) Please register so we can be sure to provide enough chairs: https://actionnetwork.org/events/park-city-engagement-matters-connecting-with-your-state-legislators
