Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. In this US election year, Democracy Now! is more important than ever. For 20 years, we’ve put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power. 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. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you every day.

Teaching Democracy Now!


Airing on over 1,200 stations, Democracy Now! is pioneering the largest public media collaboration in North America, and working to extend that collaboration into classrooms all over the world. We are launching an innovative, interactive program called Teaching Democracy Now! — to provide a variety of teaching tools for educators to encourage independent journalism, freedom of expression, and critical inquiry.

We offer a 50% discount on all DVDs/CDs and VHS copies of Democracy Now! from our online store to any educator who would like to use a DN! program in their classroom. When you place your order in our store and are ready to checkout, please specify in the "Additional Instructions" field that you are an educator and should receive a 50% discount on your DVD/CD or VHS order. Also include the name of your teaching institution and the class that it will be used in. Your card will be credited with the 50% discount.

Visiting the Democracy Now! studio is an exciting opportunity for high school, college, or continuing education students to learn about a rapidly growing independent media organization. Students will be introduced to the inner-workings of Democracy Now! and have the rare chance to go behind-the-scenes and engage directly with Democracy Now! staff.
