Democracy Now!’s National Tour: Covering the Movements Changing America

A Talk by Award-Winning Journalist Amy Goodman
introduced by her co-author, Democracy Now!’s Denis Moynihan

The unprecedented resistance to President Donald Drumpf’s rise to power did not materialize overnight. Grassroots movements have been challenging the establishment for years, and are what Democracy Now! reports on every day in its global news hour, and in this book.

From the standoff at Standing Rock over the Dakota Access Pipeline, to the voices of grassroots leaders; from Black Lives Matter activists to the stories of those fighting for peace, climate justice, migrant rights, and LGBTQ equality; from uncovering government surveillance to fighting attacks on freedom of the press, Democracy Now! has been reporting for two decades from the front lines of the movements that are changing America and changing the world.

In these times of war and elections, movements and uprisings, we need independent media more than ever. The commercial media serves as a mouthpiece for corporate and government interests—giving a platform to the pundits and the pollsters who know so little about so much, explaining the world to us and getting it so wrong.

Democracy Now! is a modern day underground railroad of information, bringing stories from the grassroots to a global audience.

Free speech is democracy’s last line of defense. We must demand it, defend it, and most of all, use it—now.
