Email from Democracy Now

Dear Friend,

In this U.S. presidential campaign season, candidates are debating who to deport, who to ban, who to bomb, and how far government surveillance should go.

I really do believe that those who are concerned about war and peace, those who care about the growing inequality between rich and poor, those who are passionate about climate change—the fate of the planet—are not a fringe minority, not even a silent majority, but the silenced majority—silenced by the corporate media.

And that's why independent media is so important. Please support Democracy Now! today.

If everyone receiving this email gave just $25 today, it would cover the cost of producing our show for all of 2016.

We're counting on you! Click here to donate today.


Democracy Now! is funded by you, our audience of listeners, viewers, and readers around the world.

This coming year, 2016, Democracy Now! is celebrating a big anniversary—20 years as your daily global independent news hour.

If you've already given to Democracy Now! this holiday season, thank you. But if you haven't had a chance to make your tax-deductible contribution, please donate today. It only takes a few seconds—and it helps ensure that Democracy Now! is here for you all year long.

You can even donate in honor of a friend or loved one—a great holiday gift! We'll be sure to let them know that you've chosen to think outside the big box stores this holiday, and give the gift of independent media instead.


From climate change to war; from the worldwide refugee crisis to the movements for immigrant rights and racial and economic justice; you count on Democracy Now! to connect the dots between the issues you care about most.
If the voices of these movements are important to you, please donate today.
When Democracy Now! covers climate change, it's not paid for by the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies. When we cover war, it's not funded by the weapons manufacturers. And when we cover health care, we're not brought to you by the insurance industry or the drug companies. 

Your donations make our daily news hour possible. 

For nearly two decades, we’ve remained independent. As we head into 2016, we're counting on your continued support.
With your help, Democracy Now! is training the next generation of independent journalists through our internship and fellowship programs. Our LEED platinum studio—the greenest in the country—serves as a classroom for more than 1,000 students who visit each year to view live broadcasts and participate in media workshops.

Our daily news hour—airing on nearly 1,400 television and radio stations in 44 countries and viewed by millions online—is only possible with your financial support.

You can click here to donate right now or mail your contribution to:

Remember, you can donate in honor of someone else—and we'll let them know that you've decided to give the gift of independent media this holiday season.

And if you donate $75 or more and you can select one of our great thank you gifts, like a signed copy of my book The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope written with Denis Moynihan.
