• A free gathering to commemorate the 94th anniversary of women’s suffrage will be at 3 pm Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Eugene Public Library. Kirk Taylor and Livvie Taylor-Young will present a scripted Power Point documentary complete with original music and photographs dating as far back as the 1800s. 

• “Tacos Not Tar Sands” Aug. 27 will feature a short documentary about the Unist’ot’en Camp, tacos and more at The Boreal (450 W. 3rd) from 6 to 9 pm. Entry is free but a donation of $5-$10 is suggested. The camp in Canada is led by the Wet’suwet’en First Nation, “who have reclaimed traditional territories and are asserting control over their hereditary lands,” and it seeks to protect the land from massive LNG and tar sands pipelines.
