johnny-cash-250.jpgIn conjunction with Slammed: The Coming Prison Meltdown, Mother Jones‘ investigation into the prison system, the MoJo staff compiled some of our favorite prison songs by the Bobby Fuller Four, ACDC, Sam Cooke, Thin Lizzy, Johnny Cash, and more.

We’re locking up 1 in every 100 American adults—and going bankrupt in the process. Are there alternatives to a total meltdown? Our MoJo Prison Guide tells you everything you wanted to know about prison but were afraid to ask. And, a comprehensive guide to all Mother Jones articles, audio, and video on the prison system and links to resources will help you find out more.

Why not listen while you read?

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
