Amy Goodman and David Goodman Present “Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times”
May 4, 2008 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
The Sanctuary for Independent Media presents, at Christ Church (5th & State in downtown Troy) Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times. The book is not only a timely, inspiring, and even revolutionary look at who wields the greatest power in America–everyday people who take a chance and stand up for what they believe in–but also offers advice on what you can do to help. Where are the millions marching in the streets to defend human rights, civil liberties, and racial justice? Where is the mass revulsion against the killing and torture being carried out in our name? Where are the environmentalists? Where is the peace movement?
The answer: They are everywhere.
The award-winning sister-brother team of Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, and investigative journalist David Goodman traveled the country to detail the ways in which grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians. Standing Up to the Madness tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed.
