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.

Amy Goodman will interview Johan Galtung, author and principal founder of the field of Peace Studies during an evening entitled Peace, Justice, Empire and Occupation. During their conversation, they will explore the connections between peace, justice and economics; the role that movements like Occupy play in building democracy and constraining empire; and the prospects for peace at home and abroad.

This event is organized by Envision Peace Museum and co-sponsored by the Center For Peace and Global Citizenship at Haverford College; The American Friends Service Committee; Psychologists for Social Responsibility, and the Solomon Asch Center for Study of Ethnopolitical Conflict at Bryn Mawr College.
