A Call for Reader Recharges: Let Us Know Where, and How, You Find Strength as the Year Wraps Up

Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.

As we close the books on 2020, or try to, chapters of new devastation keep appearing: Just yesterday the United States saw its highest single-day death toll in the pandemic yet, and the number is expected to climb rapidly. But that’s exactly why our newsletter ends each day with a story of strength gained, justice achieved, or stamina built. Or at least good music. A reminder that today brings the livestream launch party for Thulani Davis’ Nothing But the Music, at 7:30 p.m. ET. Story here, register here.

It’s also why our priorities at Mother Jones are to keep shining a light not just on abuses of systems and power, and on systems themselves, but on ways that change and justice happen. As the year kicks and screams, starts and stops, and crashes on its final lap, let us know how you’re getting a recharge. Our Recharge team knows that so many of you are showing up for each other, and fighting for change, and we want to highlight your stories from time to time. Tell us your good news or how you recharge someone else at recharge@motherjones.com.

Music and more at 7:30 p.m. ET.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
