Yale Law School Auditorium
Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, for her North American tour: Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing America.
She will be hosted on the Yale University campus by The Global Justice Program Speaker Series, The American Constitution Society at Yale Law School and the Yale chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.
Goodman will speak about increased threats to freedom of the press and the importance of truly independent media to hold those in power accountable. In more than 20 years of reporting, Democracy Now! has covered the social movements that are now forming the groundswell of opposition to the Trump administration; movements long ignored by the corporate media, but central to Democracy Now!’s daily journalism.
Amy will be introduced by her co-author, Democracy Now!’s Denis Moynihan.
Their latest NYT bestseller, Democracy Now!; 20 Years Covering the Movements Changing America is just out in paperback, and will be available for sale, with a book signing to follow the talk.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award....
