Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will TRIPLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

For the first time in over a year, Mumia Abu-Jamal will appear in a Philadelphia courtroom today. Abu-Jamal is the African American journalist and commentator who’s been on death row since 1982, when he was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer. For the past few years, attorneys have been trying to get Abu-Jamal a new trial because of judicial bias. Today’s hearing will determine whether the court will allow new evidence of police misconduct in Abu-Jamal’s case.
