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

Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing America.

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, journalist David Goodman.
