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.

Please do your part today.

    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.
