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.

Utah Poverty Summit



Eventually this stagnant economy is going to un-eff itself--at least that’s what the economists in Washington tell us. Until then, why not come to the sixth annual Utah Poverty Summit this Saturday, and learn how to help ease the squeeze of this recession on low-income Utah families.--- County Mayor Peter Corroon will be the keynote speaker at the summit, which will consider topics like how the coming healthcare bill will protect the health of low-income Utahns, how to protect vital social services from the budgetary chopping block and more. The event is free and open to the public with a free lunch included.

Saturday, October 3, St. Mark's Cathedral, 231 E 100 South, Salt Lake City, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
