Friday, May 5th, 2017
2:00 – 3:30 pm / Skinner Memorial Chapel
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now at Carleton

Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, for her North American tour: Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing America.

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.

Amy will be introduced by her co-author, Democracy Now! colleague Denis Moynihan.

Their latest NYT bestseller is just out in paperback, and will be available for sale, with an book signing to follow the talk.
