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.

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.

This event is free and open to the public.
