Join Amy Goodman and her Democracy Now! colleague and co-author Denis Moynihan at a talk and book signing to benefit WERU community radio on Saturday night, May 14th!

In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on the Pacifica Radio Network to focus on issues and movements that are often ignored by much of the 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 democracynow.org.

In their new book, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, Amy, along with her journalist brother, David Goodman, and co-author Denis Moynihan, share stories of the whistleblowers, the organizers, and the protesters, among others, who have brought about extraordinary change.
