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

“Mother of Exiles” is a new song by Vermont writer Peter Gould made from the words of the poem Emma Lazarus wrote for the Statue of Liberty in 1883. The song was featured on today’s episode of Democracy Now! Gould describes the song as a “commentary on the meaning of the Statue and of our republic, in light of the new directives on immigrants and refugees, and the new wave of detentions and deportations.”
