You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the standoff at Standing Rock or news about the movements fighting for peace, racial and economic justice, immigrant rights and LGBTQ equality. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2017. Pretty exciting, right? So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2017.
We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.
Please do your part today.
By setting up a table you can display useful information about DN! that people can take with them. Ask our outreach team for DN! brochures and use materials from our downloadable resources section.
What to Put on Your Table:
There are hundreds of ways to grab people’s attention so don’t let our short list inhibit your creativity!
When tabling, your goal is to get people interested in the show and energized about your campaign. It can be disheartening when people are too busy to talk with you. But keep your chin up! You are doing important work, getting even one new listener/viewer makes a huge difference.
The three most important points of tabling are:
1. A good location increases the number of people who will casually walk by and possibly start up a conversation with you.
2. Making eye contact, smiling, and calling out tag-lines to perk their interest are essential ways to attract people to the table. Being friendly and welcoming makes people less nervous to come up to your table. Once they are looking at the table, try engaging them in conversation about DN!
3. Familiarity with the show allows you to be able to talk in depth and comfortably about DN! By simply listening to/watching the show you should be fine!
If you choose to make your own materials, please send us a copy so that we can facilitate the sharing of ideas among DN! supporters around the country. Contact the Democracy Now! Outreach Team by email: Email: email@example.com or call us at: 212-431-9090 x802
