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 TRIPLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times 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

The event was chosen as the “Pick of the Week” by the independent Tucson Weekly, in this article written by local journalism prof Hank Stephenson:

Connecting Indie-Media Dots

The article highlights ongoing struggles of Access Tucson to maintain its share of the cable franchise fees that are intended for public access TV, and also that KXCI had its best fund drive ever.

Democracy Now! will be broadcast from the studios of KUAT/Arizona Public Media Ch. 6, a PBS affiliate, on Monday Apr 27th.

DN! producer Nicole Salazar has joined the tour.
