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.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
