Amy Goodman in Winnipeg: Stories of Democracy, Resistance and Hope

Winnipeg, MB

September 29, 2017 | Friday | 7:00 pm

Knox United Church

400 Edmonton, Street,
Winnipeg, MB ( see map )
Entitled “Stories of Democracy, Resistance and Hope,” Amy Goodman’s evening talk will illuminate and recount her personal experiences as a journalist covering citizen/grassroots-based movements that daily confront and resist repressive governments and regimes in support of social, economic and climate justice.

AMY GOODMAN is an American broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author of six books. Since 1996, Goodman has hosted Democracy Now! and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2012 Gandhi Peace Award for a “significant contribution to the promotion of an enduring international peace”. In 2016, she was criminally charged in connection with her coverage of protests of the Dakota Access pipeline. The charges, which were condemned by the Committee to Protect Journalists, were ultimately dismissed.

Goodman will be available to sign copies of her latest bestseller, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, which will be for sale at the event.
