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. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Watch our interview with Rocky Anderson, former mayor of Salt Lake City, when he announced his presidential campaign in December.

In July, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman sat down with Dr. Jill Stein for an extended interview.

During an interview several weeks ago, Rocky Anderson discussed how the Democrats and Republicans were restricting third parties in U.S. politics.
