Dear Wiretap friends, we’ve got some great news! As you may recall, last year Wiretap ran out of funding, and we closed our doors indefinitely. Fortunately, this year we found a new home. Thanks to the editors at Mother Jones magazine, some parts of Wiretap will live on at this storied magazine’s headquarters in San Francisco.

What exactly does that mean? It means that my colleague Titania Kumeh and I will bring you Wiretap-style coverage of the youth issues you care about: education, immigration, race, environment, culture, and everything in between. We’ll take you inside California’s public schools for a firsthand look at what’s really required to provide quality education for young people regardless of their background. And we’ll showcase the local students, teachers, parents, and young activists who handle—with more creativity and grace than usually gets reported—the daily challenges that national education experts love to talk about in dire tones.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for coverage via email, Twitter, and article comments. Also, be sure to follow our Wiretap staff alums! Jamilah King’s been on a tear with her witty writing for ColorLines, and Tomas Palermo continues to bring us the most inspired reggae, soul, and dancehall over at ForwardEver.

Thank you for your letters of support and good wishes in the past year. You kept us going more than anything else could.

Editors’ Note: For more Wiretap-style coverage, check out our ongoing series reported from Mission High School, where youth issues writer Kristina Rizga is known to students as “Miss K.” Click here to see all of MoJo’s recent education coverage, or follow The Miss K Files on Twitter or with this RSS Feed.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
