Agenda for SEJ's 25th Annual Conference

Registration for SEJ's 2015 conference in Norman, Oklahoma is now open for members only, until May 1st. Come to the land of weather, water and energy — and prepare to be surprised. We and our host, the University of Oklahoma, will fill your notebook with story ideas. The story-telling landscape has changed so we're providing video and graphics training, all-day tours and sessions on fracking & quakes, climate change & extreme weather, water rights & fights, Native Americans & diversity, ag & soil health, and so much more. Peruse the full draft agenda, book your hotel or reserve your exhibit space. Tornado image courtesy National Severe Storms Laboratory.

Many Along Texas Border Still Live Without Safe, Drinkable Water

"Turn on the faucet. Fill a glass with water. Drink it. Acts so commonplace you perform them without thinking twice. Flora Barraza cannot. Neither can José Garcia, nor the cooks at Los Pasteles Bakery No. 2, nor the elderly at the Epoca de Oro Adult Day Care. Along the Texas-Mexico border, nearly 90,000 people are believed to still live without running water. An untold number more — likely tens of thousands, but no one is sure — often have running water of such poor quality that they cannot know what poisons or diseases it might carry."
