It’s Fundraising Day!

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

It’s that time of year again: fundraising season, when I ask you for a few dollars to help keep us going. Unlike some magazines, we’ve never tried to raise money by installing a paywall for our online content because we think it’s important to make our reporting as widely accessible as possible. Stories like the attempt by House Republicans to restrict abortions by redefining rape. (After a national outcry, the proposal was dropped.) Or how the Wisconsin governor’s union-busting was bankrolled by the secretive billionaire Koch brothers. (That story was picked up by the New York Times.) And our reporting and explainers on Egypt, Libya, and the broader Middle East have been hailed as “indispensable.”

But we still need help from our readers. If you appreciate our blogs, newsletters, and long form magazine pieces, please do your part and help us out. Your donation—any amount—will have a real impact on our work. Even $5 helps. Plus, it’s tax deductible. Please take a minute to donate via credit card or PayPal.

On a personal note, I’ve been at Mother Jones for a couple of years now, and I’ve been amazed at how far our online presence has come in that time. If you’re not checking it out on a regular basis, you’re really missing out. But it’s expensive to keep this kind of reporting going, and that’s why we’re asking for your help. Please donate today if you can. Thanks!

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
