Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the standoff at Standing Rock or news about the movements fighting for peace, racial and economic justice, immigrant rights and LGBTQ equality. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2017. 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 and everybody else in 2017.

Neighbor to Neighbor is a grassroots organization working for human rights and economic justice, which has a political action committee unlike other PACS. Instead of giving money to campaigns, Neighbor to Neighbor gives in-kind donations of trained organizers to help get out the vote in close Congressional races. Joining us now to talk about their efforts is:

SHELLY MOSKOWITZ, POLITICAL DIRECTOR OF THE NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE.

Speaking of Neighbors, we though it would be interesting to find out how people living in other countries are viewing this U.S. election, especially our neighbor to the South, Mexico, since the political and economic fates of our two countries are so intertwined. As anti-immigrant rhetoric becomes a powerful feature of many campaigns, and the fallout of the North American Free Trade Agreement goes largely unaddressed, we asked reporter Jana Schroeder to speak with Mexican citizens about the U.S. elections.
