Hello! You are part of a community of millions who seek out Democracy Now! each month for ad-free daily news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for our in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the voices of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We produce all of this news at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation. We do this without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on support from viewers and listeners like you. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $10 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make a monthly contribution.

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.
