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

Jamaal Bowman Wins New York House Seat on Medicare for All, Green New Deal Platform

HeadlineNov 04, 2020

In New York’s 16th Congressional District, Jamaal Bowman has defeated Republican challenger Patrick McManus. Bowman is a former Bronx middle school principal who recently joined protests demanding an end to racism and police brutality. In June’s Democratic primary, Bowman defeated Congressmember Eliot Engel, the Foreign Affairs Committee chair who has served in Congress for more than 30 years. Congressmember-elect Bowman spoke to Democracy Now! on election night.

Rep.-elect Jamaal Bowman: “I’m going to Washington to fight for housing as a human right, healthcare as a human right, fully funding our public schools, a federal jobs guarantee, raising the federal minimum wage, a Green New Deal, and humane criminal justice and immigration reform.”
