There’s a lot to check in with MoJo readers about when it comes to the attacks on democracy we’re seeing with new voter suppression laws proliferating across the country, as redistricting gets underway this fall, and the 2022 midterms gear up—and of course, processing the shameful rollback of fundamental rights in Texas.

So we’re excited to invite you to a special event: Join senior reporter Ari Berman in conversation with Beto O’Rourke on Wednesday, September 22, at 4 ET / 1 PT for a wide-ranging discussion about the state of voting rights and the work ahead to protect democracy across the country and in O’Rourke’s home state of Texas. 

And we’d love to know what questions you all in the Mother Jones community have about the brazen attacks on voting and democracy itself as we prepare for the event. Submit your questions for Ari by Sunday, September 19, and we’ll address as many of them as possible when get together.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
