A young boy leans over a wall trying to get the attention of Lt. Col. Jayson Allen as he hands out school supplies to a group of children October 14, 2011, in Laghman province, Afghanistan. Allen is the Laghman Provincial Reconstruction Team commander. The PRT traveled to the village of Deh E Ziarat to meet with the village elder and the people to talk about their community.

Fact:

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.
