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 every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2016. And, today a generous funder will match your donation dollar for dollar. That means when you give $10 today, your donation will be worth $20. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2016.

Education for Social Change

“I have used a written interview from Democracy Now as part of a unit on Social Change that I do in an advanced writing class. I also plan to use other interviews for listening comprehension exercises in an advanced oral communication skills class. My experience is that if I give the students real social, cultural and political information, which I also get from many other sources, it enhances learning and fulfills one of our student learning outcomes of helping students become responsible community members.”
