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

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!
