Democracy Now! is on the road for a two-month, 100-city tour, starting with the Republican National Convention in Tampa and the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, running up to Election Day, holding public events to help raise critical funds for the public broadcasters that carry Democracy Now!.

Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan will sign copies of their new book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.
