New at Mother Jones

Choose to Make a Difference

The disaster in New Orleans makes at least one thing clear — the importance of serving our communities and being there for one another.

Surviving New Orleans
By David Enders
Residents still stranded in the city — many of them poor, many of them minorities — find ways to scrape by.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
