Impact Investigations: Environmental Coverage with a Racial Equity Lens
Please join the Fund for Investigative Journalism next Thursday (April 29) at 11:30 a.m. Eastern for a free online forum, “Impact Investigations: Environmental Coverage with a Racial Equity Lens.”
You’ll hear from several leading journalists, including two of their grantees whose recent stories examine the impact of environmental issues on communities of color. The discussion will be moderated by Lottie Joiner, an award-winning journalist who serves on the FIJ’s Board of Directors.
We are delighted that this event is co-sponsored with the Uproot Project, a newly launched network for journalists of color who cover the environmental beat, as well as students and others who aspire to cover the environment.
