Amy Goodman will take the stage on Sept. 18, 2012 at noon to talk about the 2012 elections and community media at the Wealthy Theatre, a service of the Grand Rapids Community Media Center (GRCMC). 

Award-winning journalist Amy Goodman is well known for her long-running news program, "Democracy Now!"

Goodman and Democracy Now! are on the road for a two month, 100 city tour. Goodman is visiting Grand Rapids and other cities in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the public broadcasters and community media stations that carry Democracy Now! on their stations, such as GRTV, a part of GRCMC.

"We'll travel through many of the electoral swing states, going beyond the mainstream media’s obsessive focus on the latest poll numbers and candidate gaffes, to examine how people are organizing; the impacts of restrictive voter ID laws that are making it harder to vote; and how the massive influx of campaign cash following the Citizens United decision is changing how our democracy works," says Denis Moynihan, co-founder of Democracy Now!.

Proceeds from donations given during Goodman's event will benefit the Community Media Center, and donations will be accepted at the door. The event is generously underwritten by Griffin Properties.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
