Amy Goodman at Benefit for KPFK

Los Angeles, CA

April 14, 2016 | Thursday | 7:00 pm

Immanuel Presbyterian Church

3300 Wilshire Blvd,
Los Angeles, CA 90010 ( see map )
Amy Goodman will give a talk and sign books to celebrate Democracy Now!’s 20th anniversary and KPFK radio.

To mark the anniversary, Amy has written a new book, Democracy Now! Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America written with her brother, journalist David Goodman, and her Democracy Now! colleague Denis Moynihan. Her co-authors will join her after the talk for a book signing.

The talk and accompanying book are a celebration of the acclaimed television and radio news program Democracy Now! and the extraordinary movements and heroes who have moved our democracy forward.

In 1996 Amy Goodman began hosting a show on Pacifica Radio called Democracy Now! to focus on the issues and movements that are too often ignored by the corporate media. Today Democracy Now! is the largest public media collaboration in the US, broadcasting on over 1,400 public television and radio stations around the world, with millions accessing it online at DemocracyNow.org.

This important book looks back over the past two decades of Democracy Now! and the powerful movements and charismatic leaders who are re-shaping our world. Goodman takes the reader along as she goes to where the silence is, bringing out voices from the streets of Ferguson to Staten Island, Wall Street, South Carolina to East Timor—and other places where people are rising up to demand justice. In the book, as in her talk, she shares stories of the heroes—the whistleblowers, the organizers, the protesters—who have brought about remarkable change.
