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.

The Planet Connections Theatre Festivity and "Decadent Acts" pledges to donate portion of show proceeds to Democracy Now!

    The Planet Connections Theatre Festivity is an environmentally friendly theatre festival playing shows from June 3 until June 29. Located in NYC, this festival strives to produce 'Theatre for a cause,' as it is committed to showing thought-provoking plays while giving back to the community. A portion of each show’s proceeds is donated to various charitable organizations. This year, some of the proceeds from one of the festival’s shows, “Decadent Acts”, will be donated to Democracy Now!.

    “Decadent Acts” is a play that deals with LGBT issues. The play takes place in NYC in the 1980s and tells the story of a lesbian couple, Farah and Jolene, and their daughter Nicole, and the adversity they face when Farah becomes severely ill. Child custody laws a hospital visitation rights all pose problems for this same-sex couple, while they are going through such hardship. For more information, to see the performance schedule or to buy tickets, please visit: http://www.planetconnectionsfestivity.com/shows/decadent-acts.

    Thank you Planet Connections for your kind donation!
