There’s a lot to check in with MoJo readers about when it comes to the attacks on democracy we’re seeing with new voter suppression laws proliferating across the country, as redistricting gets underway this fall, and the 2022 midterms gear up—and of course, processing the shameful rollback of fundamental rights in Texas.

So we’re excited to invite you to a special event: Join senior reporter Ari Berman in conversation with Beto O’Rourke on Wednesday, September 22, at 4 ET / 1 PT for a wide-ranging discussion about the state of voting rights and the work ahead to protect democracy across the country and in O’Rourke’s home state of Texas. 

And we’d love to know what questions you all in the Mother Jones community have about the brazen attacks on voting and democracy itself as we prepare for the event. Submit your questions for Ari by Sunday, September 19, and we’ll address as many of them as possible when get together.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
