Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Amy Goodman talks with Becky Cain and Richard Harwood about a project to bring citizens together in six cities to discuss the problem of money in politics. Citizens will discuss the problem, meet with elected officials and others affected by money in politics, and make policy recommendations. Participants will be chosen at random, and the emphasis will be on discussion, rather than the canned question-and-answer format that reduces the value of town hall-style projects.
