The popular and award-winning independent news program Democracy Now!
reports on the front lines of the movements that are changing America and changing the world. At this event, Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, will examine the current state of affairs—from Standing Rock to #BlackLivesMatter to LGBTQ equality, not to mention the unprecedented resistance to Donald Trump’s rise to power. Goodman makes the case that in these times of war and elections, movements and uprisings, we need independent media more than ever. She reminds us that free speech is democracy’s last line of defense. We must demand it, defend it, and most of all, use it. Buy the book
