Dear Reader,

Don’t let the bastards grind you down. Or Trump, either.

Lots of people are trying to make the world a better place, but we don’t always hear about them. Their stories may be buried by tales of greed, deceit or exploitation. And while it’s important to investigate those darker stories, as our newsroom does every day, we also need stories that remind us that hope exists and justice does win. 

That’s why we’re introducing Recharge, a weekly newsletter that offers a jolt of inspiring news—the hell-raising kind, not the fluff—and motivation to your week. Wondering what stories fit the bill? Check out the tweet thread below. 

Our very first edition launches next Wednesday, May 9. Be sure to sign up so you don’t miss a single one.

More Mother Jones reporting on Recharge

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
