Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan in Taos

Taos, NM

April 24, 2016 | Sunday | 5:00 pm

Sagebrush Inn & Suites

1508 Paseo Del Pueblo Sur,
Taos, NM 87571 ( see map )
Amy Goodman will give a talk followed by a book signing in Taos, celebrating Democracy Now!'s 20th anniversary on the air, as well as the Taos's rich independent radio landscape.

To mark this 20th anniversary, Amy, along with her journalist brother, David Goodman and Democracy Now! colleague Denis Moynihan, have written a new book, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America

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 1400 public television and radio stations around the world, with millions accessing it online at Now Amy and her co-authors share stories of the heroes—the whistleblowers, the organizers, the protesters—who have brought about remarkable change.

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. Democracy Now! is the modern day underground railroad of information, bringing stories from the grassroots to a global audience.

Proceeds from this event will support Democracy Now! as well as Alamos-Taos independent media KRZA 88.7 FM.

Tickets are $10, available at the door. Cash only.
