4th floor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
This event is part of a national speaking tour which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the acclaimed television, radio and internet news program Democracy Now! as well as the extraordinary movements and heroes who have moved our country forward.
In 1996, Amy Goodman began hosting Democracy Now! on Pacifica Radio, 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 1,400 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.
