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

HeadlineDec 19, 2019

Seven Democratic presidential candidates will participate in a televised debate tonight at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The debate will be co-hosted by ”PBS NewsHour” and Politico and will begin at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The candidates on stage will be Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang. The Democratic National Committee has come under fierce criticism for its debate criteria, which excluded prominent candidates of color Cory Booker and Julián Castro. Cory Booker and other presidential candidates have signed a letter to DNC Chair Tom Perez urging the DNC to change its qualification criteria for upcoming debates in January and February.
