SEJ launches a 30-day "WeDidIt" crowdfunding campaign to send 18 journalists to its annual environmental journalism conference, taking place October 2-6, 2013 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Please donate now!
SEJ's Fund for Environmental Journalism awards grants of up to $3,500 to help underwrite environmental reporting projects and entrepreneurial ventures. Support the fund by donating, or apply for a grant. The deadline for the Summer 2013 cycle is July 15th. See the winners of previous rounds, and some of their resulting stories.
SEJ takes action on FOI issues: 1) On April 25, 2013 a delegation from SEJ met with US EPA's public-affairs brass to discuss the agency's chronic stonewalling of journalists' requests for interviews and information. Here's a report. 2) The Justice Department secretly obtains phone records of AP reporters and editors. Read SEJ's response.
