Free TRAX Passes on Red Air Days
Signup by Wednesday Jan 23
Courtesy of Kennecott Utah Copper. Sign up for a free, roundtrip TRAX pass to use on poor air quality days in the Salt Lake Valley.
Poor air quality is a community challenge that will require collective action by many to improve. Almost 30% of the pollution during periods of inversion is the result of transportation - specifically cars. Help do your part by carpooling, using public transit, trips chaining or telecommuting, to reduce impact to our airshed, particularly during these severe wintertime inversions.

Help End Homelessness in Salt Lake City
Jan 31 - Feb 2
We are looking for volunteers at the end of the month to survey those living on the streets to find permanent homes for the chronically homeless. Person-specific data is the key to ending homelessness for our most vulnerable (and often anonymous) homeless neighbors.
100,000 Homes communities identify their homeless neighbors by name through an event called a Registry Week, the organizing backbone of the 100,000 Homes Campaign. The Registry Week process is based on a simple idea: communities should work to identify their most vulnerable or at-risk homeless residents and prioritize them for permanent housing.
