Roaming applicants
Roaming is on the Salt Lake City ballot in November, so when deciding who to vote for, you need to know their plan first. Crossroads Urban Center sponsored Salt Lake City Applicant Forums on Housing and Homelessness with almost all applicants this quarter. And there are many. There are elections in constituencies 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7. If you don’t know which constituency you are voting in, check out this map (https://bit.ly/3ENSi4D). And to see who’s running, look here (https://bit.ly/2ZtvdEf). Applicants will be asked about who camped outside in the winter, what to do with the federal bailout money, affordable housing, and how to care for homeless families and children. If you missed wards 2 or 3, you can find recordings on the Carrefour website. Virtual, Thursday, Friday and Monday, Sept. 30, Oct. 1 and Oct. 4, 11 a.m., free. https://bit.ly/39trRTp

Redux of the women’s march
No, we still haven’t passed the Equal Rights Amendment, and yes, we are still fighting to protect women’s reproductive rights. But the constitutional law known as Roe v. Wade is attacked again. Women have been parading on the US Capitol since 2016, after the far right won with the election of Donald Trump. “From the crisis facing women in Afghanistan to the abortion ban in Texas, how did we get here and where do we go from here?” ask the organizers. They will present the Feminist Future series every Wednesday, September 29 through Nov 5 at 5 pm to help you understand how race, class, sexuality and gender shape our communities. Join SLC UT Women’s March, City and County Building, 450 S. State, Saturday, Oct. 2, 11 a.m., free. https://bit.ly/3nXQ2lg

Women in leadership
Speaking of women, how about hearing from Lieutenant Governor Deidre Henderson, who joined Governor Spencer Cox’s administration after spending eight years in the State Senate. “She has acquired a reputation as a strong conservative, a champion of open government and a staunch advocate for women and families,” say the organizers of A Fireside Conversation with Lieutenant Governor Deidre Henderson on Women and Leadership. Henderson will answer questions about “why, where and how women today are needed to influence, influence and lead in all contexts”. If you want answers don’t miss this. USU Brigham City Campus & Virtual / Register, 989 S. Main, Brigham City, Friday October 1, noon, free. https://bit.ly/3nZ2Bgd

Districts ‘R’ Us
Every week, Weekly City highlights the public hearings on the redistribution process around the state. You voted for an independent Utah Redistribution Commission, so — unless you want to be gerrymandered — you should find out what they’re doing and support them now. This week, discover the UIRC public hearing — Glendale district. Suazo Business Center, 960 W. 1700 South, Friday October 1, 6 p.m., free. https://bit.ly/3zDpVSM
