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 showed some of the Jena 6 coverage last week to the class, and the response was explosive, all over the political spectrum from some students aghast at this was happening now and some trying to defend David Duke. Some got up and walked out some asked for copies of the program.

The programs DN does are really making waves at my school when I show them. I get feedback later in the cafeteria and places that the students are appreciative of being shown a new way to thinking and analyzing current events. This area is not know for progressive values and instructors in school so DN is a big wave in this little pond."
-Bob Anderson, Political Science Professor at Central New Mexico Community College
