Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. In this US election year, Democracy Now! is more important than ever. For 20 years, we’ve put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power. We 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. A generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar if you donate right now. That means when you give $10, your donation will be worth $20. Pretty exciting, right? So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you every day.

Democracy Now! helps grad students in Sociology!

June 12, 2007
Teach Democracy Now!

“Students watch the Democracy Now! broadcast two days a week and we watch and discuss some of the most relevant material in class the next day. Some notable moments were teaching students about Iran/Contra (something they had not even heard about), Abu Ghraib (again, astonishingly, news to them), and socialism according to Senator Bernie Sanders. At this point in the semester, many students are watching the broadcasts on their own and more often, and I am very gratified to be able to lift the veil a bit for members of this generation.”
- Judith Wittner, Director, Graduate Program: Sociology, Loyola University
