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 PressBackers.com, 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

BEARS EARS INFO PANEL
Remember when Ryan Zinke road on horseback through the land surrounding the Bears Ears National Monument? Remember when Bears Ears was a national monument? If you think you know what's coming and want to learn more about who's working to protect the region for future generations, head to the Bears Ears Information Panel, a discussion with the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition. These five tribes—the Hopi, Navajo Nation, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Pueblo of Zuni and Ute Indians—are trying to squeeze into the political conversation about managing these sacred ancestral sites. Golden Braid Books, 151 S. 500 East, 801-209-1657, Sunday, June 25, 5-8 p.m., free, bit.ly/2r0nkjz

RESISTANCE COOKOUTS
They're happening all over the nation—community cookouts to keep you brewing in the resistance. The brainchild of moveon.org, the Resistance Summer Community Cookout series aims to continue building a "nonstop peaceful resistance to the dangerous rhetoric and actions of the Trump administration and the GOP." The cookouts, to which you bring a dish to share, are meant to celebrate the millions of Americans who have been active since the election and, of course, their accomplishments, however small. Lester Park, 663 24th St., Ogden, Saturday, June 24, 4-7 p.m., free, resistancesummer.com; Liberty Park, 600 E. 900 South, Salt Lake City, Monday, July 3, 5 p.m., free, bit.ly/2tviagr

MEET JILL STEIN
Yeah, yeah ... she lost, but she hasn't gone away. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is coming to Utah for the Green Party state convention. You don't have to be a party member to want to hear An Evening With Jill Stein—her thoughts on the campaign and the politics that followed. You can hear all about Green politics—the Green New Deal and what the heck it is, as well as her ideas on ecological stewardship, social and racial justice, grassroots democracy, electoral reform and non-violence. Stein will take questions from the audience, too. The Acoustic Space, 124 S. 400 West, Saturday, June 24, 4:30-6 p.m., $10, bit.ly/2s8wdvG
