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.

All across the country today, families, friends and supporters of the victims of police misconduct will be demonstrating against what they are calling an epidemic of abuse and brutality. The victims are overwhelmingly African American, Asian, Latino and people of color. Most are young.

The Stolen Lives Project, a group formed out of the National Lawyers Guild and the Anthony Baez Foundation, has documented the victims killed by police and border patrol in the United States.

Tape:

  • A reading of the names and circumstances of those killed by police and security officials over the last seven years.
