Play Back America

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Last week thousands of progressives (including a few from Mother Jones) converged on Washington D.C. for three days of strategizing, networking, motivating, and in some cases (possibly involving representatives from Mother Jones) drinking. This was the Take Back America conference, devised and laid on by the Campaign for America’s Future and the Institute for America’s Future (we liberals are forward-looking, you can’t deny it!) and dedicated to the proposition that progressives can and must get their act together already! If you missed the event, don’t worry — as of today you can check out the major speeches, behind-the-scenes footage, and radio interviews online. Go see — and let’s make sure that what happens in Washington doesn’t stay in Washington.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
