Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, for her North American tour:

Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing America.

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.
