The Uproot Project is a network for journalists of color who cover environmental issues, as well as students and others aspiring to cover this beat. Uproot is dedicated to advancing the careers of journalists of color who’ve been historically underrepresented in this field. Uproot membership is currently free for journalists of color and we encourage you to sign up.

Funding for the #SEJ2024 Diversity Travel Fellowships is provided by MacArthur Foundation, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, The Pew Charitable Trusts, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, Jay Letto and Dawn Stover, and individual donors to SEJ.
