Award-winning journalist Amy Goodman, host of the daily, grassroots, global, radio/TV news hour Democracy Now!, is on a national speaking tour to mark DN!’s 12th anniversary and launch her third book with journalist David Goodman, Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times.
The book explores how grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians and tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed.
Following the lecture, there will be a book signing and books will be available for purchase.
This event is a fundraiser for the local left and progressive independent news website Mediamouse.org. Mediamouse.org provides news, analysis, and commentary covering Grand Rapids, Michigan and beyond to inspire grassroots activism to transform our community, our lives, and our world.
