Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, at the only Chicago stop on 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 Democracy Now! colleague and co-author, Denis Moynihan.
This event is free and open to everyone. No registration required. Women & Children First will be selling books before, after, and during the event. Both Amy and Denis will be available to sign books after the talk.
