We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Sick Healthcare Rallies!



The Revolt is seeing a lot of folks coming out in force to try and push along national health reform. The people are sick of shitty healthcare and for many, the only prescription is a little civically nutritious activism. Why not take a double dose with these local events.

 On Wednesday July 8, the Crossroads Urban Center will be hosting a barbecue to show support for expanding Medicaid to all Americans below the poverty line and making healthcare more affordable for millions. The event will be from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the northeast corner of Liberty Park, 900 S. 500 East, and is free and open to all.

 On Thursday July 9, some local Move.on peeps will be holding a rally at the district office of Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, in support of the public healthcare option. Local residents will tell their healthcare horror stories and a petition supporting the Obama plan will be passed around. The rally will kick off at 2 p.m at the downtown Federal Building, 125 S. State Street, Salt Lake City
