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.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
