Tell Us Your Story: How Is the Spread of Coronavirus Already Disrupting Your Everyday Life?

How are you coping? Call (510) 519-MOJO to leave the Mother Jones Podcast team your message.

For this week’s episode of the Mother Jones Podcast, we want to hear from you: How has the spread of the coronavirus across the United States already disrupted your everyday life—and how are you coping?

Call (510) 519-MOJO. That’s (510) 519-6656‬.

You’ll hear our host Jamilah King give you instructions on how to introduce yourself and leave your story on our voicemail. We may air your story on this week’s episode of the podcast.

We want to hear your stories about how you’ve been coping with disrupted or reduced work or class schedules, how people in your community are supporting each other, what you’ve been doing to help others cope, and how you’ve been navigating guidance from health officials and other leaders.

Perhaps you are caring for someone with health problems and trying to be extra vigilant while doing your best to keep up with the demands? Maybe your work meetings have been cancelled and the next three months have been thrown into disarray? Maybe you’re a shift worker or in the casual workforce, and you’re making plans for how to make ends meet?

That number again: (510) 519-MOJO.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
