Sgt. Alica Keppley, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 13 aviation supply specialist, holds her daughter Arrianna, 2, after returning home to the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Ariz., from a seven-month deployment with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the USS Boxer July 31, 2009. Approximately 100 Marine Attack Squadron 214 and MALS-13 Marines and sailors returned to Yuma. While deployed, the Marines aided in counter-piracy operations off the coast of Africa, near the Gulf of Aden, including the recovery of Richard Phillips, a civilian cargo ship captain who was taken hostage by Somali pirates.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
