Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Students “Turned-On” by Current Events After Watching DN! in their Class

Teach Democracy Now!September 29, 2007

“I showed some of the Jena 6 coverage last week to the class, and the response was explosive, all over the political spectrum from some students aghast at this was happening now and some trying to defend David Duke. Some got up and walked out some asked for copies of the program.

The programs DN does are really making waves at my school when I show them. I get feedback later in the cafeteria and places that the students are appreciative of being shown a new way to thinking and analyzing current events. This area is not know for progressive values and instructors in school so DN is a big wave in this little pond.”
-Bob Anderson, Political Science Professor at Central New Mexico Community College
