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

How to Help the Homeless
The weather's changing and Utah's homeless population will soon be left out in the cold. The Road Home has closed and satellite operations have not all had the desired effect. The Utah Foundation plans to address these questions at Homeless in Salt Lake: The COVID-19 Response and People on Streets: How have Utah's homeless service providers dealt with the pandemic? Where are the efforts to address service gaps going? How should we approach those who remain on the streets from a policy standpoint? A panel of experts including Rep. Eric Hutchings will present. Virtual/RSVP, Tuesday, Nov. 10, 9-10 a.m., free. https://bit.ly/35QAbKz

Equality March
Before we make America great again, we need to first make it great. "Racial and gender discrimination occur on a daily basis, hindering progress for millions of people around the world," say organizers of the March for Racial and Gender Equality. This is a way to demonstrate the importance of equality and the long road ahead. "As a community, we need to commit ourselves to standing against any form of hatred, facing your own bias and denouncing any behavior that perpetuates hatred." Pioneer Park, 300 W. 300 South, Saturday, Nov. 7, 3 p.m., free. https://bit.ly/31SEQdZ

Bernardo's March
The group Justice for Bernardo, providing mutual aid to marginalized people, will lead A March in Bernardo's footsteps, in memory of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal, or Loske, as friends and family knew him. Marchers will take a familiar route in the Rose Park neighborhood. "In addition to remembering Bernardo, we are protesting a pattern of police brutality that is disproportionately impacting the westside of Salt Lake City, primarily Glendale, Rose Park and West Valley," organizers say. Because of the cooling temperatures, they are asking participants to bring nonperishable food, shoes, warm clothing, coats, baby/children items and other items to the protest. WestPointe Park, 1920 Colonel Road, Saturday, Nov. 7, 4:30 p.m., free.

Fake News or Journalism?
What does freedom of the press mean in this era of heightened tensions and partisan tropes? The McCarthey Family Foundation Lecture Series: In Praise of Independent Journalism will highlight winners of the National Student Essay Competition and the Utah Essay Competition and focus on the recent presidential election. Jane Mayer, investigative journalist and staff writer for The New Yorker, will be the guest lecturer and participate in a Q&A after her remarks.
