Rally For Sprague

Poverty Summit
Poverty and homelessness are making headlines big time, but there's a lot of #fakenews out there about why and what can be done to address the problem. At Crossroads Urban Center's Annual Poverty Summit, a panel will discuss the top myths surrounding homelessness and give you facts about Salt Lake City's housing crisis. State Sen. Jim Dabakis plans to talk about a bill to eliminate the sales tax on food—always a controversial issue in this conservative state. In the last legislative session, a plan to raise the food tax was abandoned—at least for now. Cathedral Church of St. Mark, 231 E. 100 South, 801-364-7765, Saturday, Aug. 26, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2uK2ZER
