A few short weeks after both major parties officially kick off the presidential race for the White House, Amy Goodman – host of the acclaimed radio show Democracy Now! – will offer her thoughts on what the election means for women, people of color, and poor people in this country and internationally. Copies of Goodman’s books will be available for purchase.
