Events for Activist Groups

Vintage and Secondhand Clothing Market with 24 Local Vendors

24 Local Vintage and Secondhand Vendors will all be under one roof. In an effort to make shopping secondhand and vintage easy and accessible (instead of supporting fast fashion and its detrimental impacts), we're hosting a huge vintage and secondhand market for Fall! Shop small before the mall. For the planet and everyone on it (and your wallet).

This event is one day only.  There is a $2 entry cash or venmo at the door https://www.facebook.com/events/2378442002409959/ https://www.instagram.com/vintagemarketslc/

Combatants for Peace

Sulaiman Khatib is one of the original cofounders of Combatants for Peace, and as such has been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. As a Palestinian teenager he reacted to the suffering of the occupation by protesting it in escalating, violent ways. At 15 he was arrested for attacking an Israeli solider with a knife, and was sentenced to prison where he experienced brutal conditions. While serving his sentence, in an effort to understand "the enemy," he began educating himself about the Jewish/Israeli perspective, which sensitized him to the idea that there was another side to this conflict. This growing compassion was heightened after watching the film Schindler's List. "I was deeply moved, and it changed my life forever. I realized that these “enemies” were actually human beings who were also suffering. I reconstructed my worldview." Since then he has been a strong advocate for peaceful means of overcoming the true enemy: hatred and fear. Tuly Flint is the highest ranking officer in Combatants for Peace, the equivalent of a two star general, and probably one of the highest ranking people in the Israeli military to ever refuse to serve, despite even being threatened with a public military trial.
