This is how we protect the editorial independence you rely on. It also means we're counting on you. In honor of our 24th birthday, a generous supporter will DOUBLE every donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift can go twice as far. Please do your part. It takes just minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else for another 24 years. Thank you so much!

Gene Young

Witness to the Jackson State tragedy and longtime civil rights activist. He began his activism as a pre-teen, getting arrested for civil disobedience at a bus station at the age of twelve. Before his thirteenth birthday, Young took his first plane ride to New York to speak to civil rights groups. He attended the 1963 March on Washington and testified at the House of Representatives, alongside civil and voting rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer. He has continued his activism to this day and was a featured speaker last week at an event commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the Kent State shootings.
