Zoya Teirstein is a staff writer for Grist, covering the intersection of public health and climate change, and the politics of climate change. More about Zoya.


"I would recommend SEJ to anyone who is interested in environmental journalism, particularly those who are trying to break into the field. SEJ is a great resource for jobs, internships, fellowships, sources and more. But I think the best resource it offers journalists is a sense of community, particularly via its yearly conferences."

- Zoya Teirstein, Grist

Give to SEJ's Conference Diversity Travel Fellowships to help cover the costs of registration, travel, lodging and other expenses of Diversity Fellowships. Here’s what past participants had to say:

  • "I would not have been able to attend without the SEJ/Uproot diversity fellowship, and I am truly grateful for it as this is easily the best conference I've been to as a newer journalist. I am truly grateful for the program and hope it can be expanded so even more people, who otherwise would not be able to, can attend."
  • "As an emerging freelance photojournalist in the midwest I have limited resources and opportunities to attend conference. This limits my ability for professional growth and networking. I would not have been able to attend the workshop without the Uproot Project Fellowship."

Give to the SEJ Members in Need Fund to help cover fee waivers and other costs of participating in SEJ programs, for members experiencing financial hardship.
