Amy Goodman appeared in Silver City in 2009 in a benefit for GMCR and we are honored to present her once again.

Amy and Democracy Now! are at the core of GMCR’s vision of community media in Silver City.  After 10 years as producer of WBAI/Pacifica/NY’s Evening News, Amy launched Democracy Now in 1995.  During and since that time, Democracy Now’s audience, recognition, significance and credibility have soared and it is the most accomplished and highest rated progressive news outlet throughout the world.

This appearance is part of the 100 city The Silenced Majority tour that commenced following DN!’s extended coverage of the Republican and Democratic conventions and will continue through the presidential election in November.  The Silenced Majority is her new book co-authored with longtime associate Denis Moynihan and she and Denis will be available to autograph books after she speaks.

Democracy Now!Subtitled Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope, it chronicles the recent struggles during which the Occupy  Movement and Arab Spring have “shaken the  windows and rattled the walls” of convention and the international status quo.

Each stop on the tour includes a benefit for a local community media outlet.  GMCR is honored to be selected here in Silver City and urge you to attend to show your support for local community media and the extraordinary work that Amy, Denis and the Democracy Now! team do every day.

We wish to thank our Event Sponsors for their support of Community Media…

    Hello – I have just purchased 2 tickets to hear Amy Goodman on the 12th. I am driving up from Las Cruces, and need directions to the Global Resource Center at WNMU. If you have a street address, I can use my GPS. Thank you for your attention to this request.

    Hi Kathy,

    The GRC is at 12th & Kentucky. Here’s a campus map >

    Probably easiest to check one of the map sites for directions to town but basically head west on I-10 to 180 N in Deming heading to Silver City. You’ll pass through Hurley, Bayard and Santa Clara and continue toward SC. You’ll pass Wal-Mart and our strip mall section. As you approach Hwy 90, keep to the right. When you see Sun Valley hardware, continue straight. As you approach the stoplight at 12th, you’ll see Gough Park on your left and a Wells Fargo bank on your right. Make a right on 12th and continue several blocks and you’ll see the start of the WNMU campus. Continue a few more blocks and you’ll see the GRC on your left – corner of Kentucky.

    See you there!

    Hi I’ll be coming in from El Paso. Once arriving to the WNMU campus will there be parking within the campus grounds in the GRCENT Building area? Thank You.

      Hi Gabriela,

      Great to hear from you.

      The Campus map is here >

      The GRC is at 12th & Kentucky – #4 on the map. White 2 story building. If you don’t see a parking spot on the street as you approach it, turn left immediately after it and there’s plenty of parking at the Fine Arts Center parking lot just around the corner – #12 on the map.

      See you there!
