Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now, for her North American Tour: "DEMOCRACY NOW!: COVERING THE MOVEMENTS CHANGING AMERICA." Amy will be introduced by her brother and co-author David Goodman.
Goodman will speak about increased threats to freedom of the press and the importance of truly independent media to hold those in power accountable. In more than 20 years of reporting, Democracy Now! has covered the social movements that are now forming the groundswell of opposition to the Trump administration; movements long ignored by the corporate media, but central to Democracy Now!’s daily journalism. Other topics covered include: Standing Rock, Dakota Access Pipeline, Dirk Koning, community media, setting an example for the next generation of journalists, and the origins of Democracy Now.
