Radio host, author to speak at UVa.

Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, will speak at the University of Virginia on Friday, Sept. 28, 7-9 p.m., at South Lawn Commons, Nau Auditorium, 1550 Jefferson Park Ave., Charlottesville.

The event is free and open to public.

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!.

The tour route covers many of the electoral swing states, going beyond the mainstream media’s obsessive focus on the latest poll numbers and candidate gaffes, to see on the ground 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.

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