Event description

Description

Amy Goodman is an American broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author of six books, and will be speaking as this special event in Toronto.

Since 1996, Goodman has hosted Democracy Now!: a daily, independent, award-winning news program broadcast on public radio, satellite television across the world. Goodman is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Gandhi Peace Award for “a significant contribution to the promotion of enduring international peace,” the 1998 George Polk Award (with Jeremy Scahill) for investigative reporting on Chevron’s role in Nigeria’s dictatorship, and the 1993 Robert F Kennedy Prize for International Reporting (with Allan Nairn) for coverage of the East Timor independence movement and Santa Cruz Massacre.

In 2016 she was criminally charged in connection with her coverage of protests of the Dakota Access pipeline at Standing Rock, North Dakota. The charges, which were condemned by the Committee to Protect Journalists, were ultimately dismissed.

Entitled “Reporting Democracy, Resistance and Hope,” Amy Goodman’s evening talk will illuminate and recount her personal experiences as a journalist covering citizen/grassroots-based movements — these, whom daily confront and resist repressive governments and regimes in support of social, economic and climate justice.

Guests to this event will have the opportunity to share in some special and exciting news about the recently launched Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellowship, with our special guest Olivia Chow. It was six years ago that Canada lost a great leader. Jack Layton inspired people by example, demonstrating that working together for social and economic justice is possible and achievable. rabble.ca is honoured to be launching this fellowship together with the Institute for Change Leaders.

Join us for this special evening with one of North America's leading journalists.
