MORE ON DEMOCRACY NOW!:
Learn more about Democracy Now! and Amy Goodman:
Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist, syndicated columnist, author, and the host of Democracy Now!, an independent, global daily news hour. She is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize” for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.”
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.
