The Moment for Mother Jones

Launched in early 2016, the Moment for Mother Jones is a special campaign to raise funds for strategic growth. It is built around five components: expanded reporting, greater impact and reach, enhanced professional development opportunities for young journalists, new investments in technology and tools, deeper engagement with our audiences, and exploration of promising business-side opportunities. At a moment when so much is at risk, support from these Moment for Mother Jones contributors has given MoJo the resources to grow to more than 100 staffers and fellows, the largest in our history. For more information on how you can get involved, please contact Steve Katz, publisher, at skatz@motherjones.com.
