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 DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice 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.
-Amy Goodman

Last week, Christopher Lee, the pioneering Asian American film producer and former head of production, gave a speech at the annual meeting of the Asian American Journalists Association, part of the Unity 99 Conference in Seattle. He is known for producing successful films such as the Oscar award-winning Philadelphia, The Fisher King, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Jerry Maguire, and the remake of Godzilla.

Equally as impressive is Lee’s involvement with the community. He is on the board of the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies. A founding member of the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment and a frequent public speaker on minority empowerment for schools and multicultural groups, Lee has demonstrated a sincere dedication to both the film industry and the greater community.
