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. DONATE

Are You a Libertarian?

Liberty, Education, Drawing Political Lines



Ever realized that you’re not a fan of big government, but you’re also not a fan of morality police? If so, you may be a Libertarian! Find out more at this month’s Libertarian group meet-up. Later, you can attend a fundraiser by the Utah Society of Environmental Education group, which is seeking to get more green thinking in Utah’s classrooms. Finally, one of the Legislature’s final redistricting meetings will decide the fate of Utah’s political boundaries for the next decade.

K-Talk Radio host, Utah Libertarian chairman and hypnotist Jake Shannon will be hosting this hangout meeting and talking about how Libertarians can take the power back from the corporate elite.
