Journalism is in trouble, and we need to be more upfront with you about how hard it is keeping Mother Jones afloat. We also need to raise $253,000 in donations quickly. This is a legitimately urgent moment, and we unpack why as matter-of-factly as we can because readers told us to. We can't come up short again. Please help keep Mother Jones charging hard with a donation of any amount today.
