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. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Boycott Targets SoulCycle and Equinox as Lead Investor Stephen Ross Plans Trump Fundraiser

HeadlineAug 09, 2019

Customers of SoulCycle and Equinox have launched a boycott, following reports that Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross — a major shareholder in the high-end fitness chains — is planning a fundraiser for Donald Trump’s campaign. President Trump is expected to attend the event in the Hamptons this evening, which promises donors a photo with the president for $100,000 or a private roundtable discussion with Trump for a quarter-million dollars. Ahead of the event, Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills noted that Ross is founder of the nonprofit group RISE, which seeks to “eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.” Stills tweeted in reply, “You can’t have a non profit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump.”
