Dear Reader,

Don’t let the bastards grind you down. Or Trump, either.

Lots of people are trying to make the world a better place, but we don’t always hear about them. Their stories may be buried by tales of greed, deceit or exploitation. And while it’s important to investigate those darker stories, as our newsroom does every day, we also need stories that remind us that hope exists and justice does win. 

That’s why we’re introducing Recharge, a weekly newsletter that offers a jolt of inspiring news—the hell-raising kind, not the fluff—and motivation to your week. Wondering what stories fit the bill? Check out the tweet thread below. 

Our very first edition launches next Wednesday, May 9. Be sure to sign up so you don’t miss a single one.

More Mother Jones reporting on Recharge

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.
