Do you get tired of the chaotic news cycle and outrage-inducing headlines? Then let’s take a (brief) moment to focus on one of the really encouraging things that have happened in the past year.

On November 9, 2016, a lot of people felt connected to their values in a profound way. They knew what they stood for and they decided to act on them. And for many, those values included supporting journalism—because a free, independent, and critical press is not “the enemy of the people.”

If you made that choice, you’re part of a growing movement to change the way media works in this country. And we’d love to hear from you. Because Mother Jones is more than a magazine or website—it’s a community. We listen and learn from you all the time, and I want to find ways for our readers to hear from each other, too.

Why do you think independent, investigative journalism matters? Why did you decide to support Mother Jones when you can read the news for free? What keeps you motivated for the long haul?






Hearing from you will help us make the case for more people to join the community of MoJo donors. We’d love to share them—anonymously, of course—to inspire other readers, and staff. By providing your email, you agree to let us contact you about your feedback. We respect your privacy and will not use your email address for any other purpose.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
