Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate right now and help us unlock a special $25,000 gift? If 200 people donate to Democracy Now! today, a generous donor will contribute $25,000 in support of our independent journalism. Every donation counts, so please do your part. Thank you!
-Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman interviews Cecile Richards of the Texas Freedom Network. Richards, head of The Texas Freedom Network, opposes the Christian Coalition as it targets public school systems and pushes its political agenda into local school boards. The Christian Coalition is known to use stealth candidates. Large right wing organizations with very large annual budgets such as The Eagle Forum, The American Family Association and The Concerned Women of America have also become very focused on electoral politics. These groups actively field candidates with right wing views on abortion, gays and education. AFA tried unsuccessfully to put gay newspaper, Texas Triangle, out of business.
