Empowering Women to Engage

Amy Goodman has used her award-winning talents to advance the narrative for women while highlighting their powerful contributions through the power of engagement in a democracy.

 

While law-abiding Muslims are forced to hide in their homes, and animal-rights activists are labeled as terrorists for undercover filming of abusive treatment at factory farms, right-wing hate groups are free to organize, parade, arm themselves to the hilt and murder with chilling regularity. It’s time for our society to confront this very real threat.
