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.

Walk for a Cure & Rally for May Day!



This weekend, join a walk to raise funds to fight multiple sclerosis. Later in the week, get organized for May Day and celebrate this labor holiday by going on strike from work and school and joining a rally at the Capitol for workers’ rights. Later that evening, you won’t want to miss a Salt Lake City Council meeting that will be discussing mobile food trucks and funding for the Sugar House streetcar proposal.

MS Walk 2012
Saturday, April 28

Come out to the 2012 Multiple Sclerosis Walk and join hundreds of other Utahns striding to promote awareness of the debilitating disease and raise funds for a cure. You can walk as an individual, join a team, or simply donate to a walker from the sidelines of the event. The Gateway Grand Hall, 90 S. 400 West, 801-424-0112, April 28, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., or e-mail utahevents@nmss.org, CureMSUtah.org

May Day Rally
Tuesday, May 1

May Day! It’s both a distress call and a call to workers of the world to organize for their rights. This May Day, a solidarity action from groups such as Occupy SLC, the Revolutionary Students Union, United for Social Justice and the Industrial Workers of the World are calling on people to go on strike from school and their jobs and join a march to the Capitol for a rally to commemorate International Workers’ Day. Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, May 1, 4 p.m., OccupySLC.org

Salt Lake City Council
Tuesday, May 1

Everyone likes a food truck, except when they poach customers from brick & mortar restaurants’ turf. That’s why the city council is looking for input on an ordinance to regulate the permitting and approval of mobile food businesses. Also up for a hearing is another proposition on wheels: a budget amendment to provide $6.8 million to the Sugar House Greenway Project, which includes plans for a streetcar and improvements to Parley’s Trail. Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, 801-535-7600, May 1, 7 p.m., Council.SLCGov.com
