SLPS was invited to participate in the Utah Faith Fair, which was a part of the Utah Rally for Love, Equality, Family, and Acceptance. The rally and fair took place on Saturday, November 21, 2015 from 11am to 1pm at the Utah State Capitol building. Organized by Tim VanZeban, the fair was part of the community response to the new policy of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on children, which states that children of same-sex couples and marriages are not allowed to be baptized unless they disavow their parents.

The fair was successful, with a handful of religious organizations, community groups, and county services occupying the capitol building rotunda from 11-1, while the rally took place on the steps of the capitol. The rally gathered about 100, and it appeared around 150 people resigned their membership using the PostMormon table, who would be delivering the resignations for those that resigned. Others browsed the groups looking at support or getting details on their options being post Mormon. SLPS offered daily advice through a one card pull of the Medieval Cat Tarot, giving positive messages and uplifting confidence to those who had resigned their LDS membership.
