“Are you an early-career journalist looking to develop your voice, tell stories about compelling people and communities, and work at a news shop that’s making a difference? Are you obsessed with justice for all? Then Grist environmental justice fellowship may be the opportunity for you.
With the mentorship and support of Grist’s editorial staff, the justice fellow will report on the connections between social inequality and the environment. You will explore the ways in which the environmental movement can become more inclusive — especially in the current moment — and how communities of color are developing new ways to fight for cleaner air and water, as well as safer neighborhoods. We’re especially interested in journalism that identifies communities and people working on home-grown solutions. You will be expected to write quick news updates and newsletter blurbs, reported stories, and one mini-feature a month. You will also identify a long-term special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team.”
DEADLINE: January 14.
