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.

“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, it enhances learning and fulfills one of our student learning outcomes of helping students become responsible community members.”
–Lorraine Segal, ESL Program Coordinator, Napa Valley College
