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.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Goodman continues speaking to Yeshitela and Lorei.

Goodman plays a tape of speech by Marvin Davies at a press conference for the African-American Coalition in St. Petersburgh. He tells the mayor and police department that they will have to earn the trust of the community again.

Yeshitela and Lorei offer final comments. Lorei mentions that there was no reported piece on the press conference or the coalition’s broad support.

Soundbite:
- Marvin Davies, former aide to three Florida governors and President Carter, and the African-American Coalition
