Join award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, at the Burlington stop of North American tour: Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing America. The event will take place Thursday, April 27 at 7:00 pm at the UU Society, Burlington.
Goodman will speak about increased threats to freedom of the press and the importance of independent media to hold those in power accountable. With over 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 corporate media, but central to Democracy Now!’s daily journalism.
Amy will be introduced by her brother and co-author, journalist David Goodman, host of the WDEV radio show “The Vermont Conversation.” Their latest New York Times bestseller is now available in paperback, and will be available for sale, with a book signing to follow the talk.
Tickets will be $5.00 at the door. No one will be turned away for the lack of funds. The event is sponsored by the Peace & Justice Center and the First UU Society of Burlington.
