Agenda Coverage Travel/Lodging Sponsors/Exhibitors/Advertisers About Houston



SEJ's 31st Annual Conference in Houston, hosted by Rice University, is a wrap! The #SEJ2022 conference focused on environmental health and justice, energy and climate change, and oceans and coasts.

We'd like to thank our volunteers for their hard work in making this a conference for journalists by journalists.

Another huge thanks to our host, Rice University, and our main conference sponsors, Hewlett Foundation and Walton Family Foundation, and other generous sponsors, without whom #SEJ2022 would not be possible. Thank you for helping us tell the world's most important stories.

Conference co-chairs:

  • Perla Trevizo, reporter with the ProPublica/Texas Tribune Investigative Unit
  • Naveena Sadasivam, senior staff writer at Grist

It's critically important to SEJ to gather evidence on the impact of our work. So we're tracking stories inspired by or informed by our conference in Houston, on our multimedia coverage page. The stories don't have to be about Houston or Texas; they can be based on sources or ideas you got from being at the conference. Please help us to keep SEJ strong and share links, photos, copies of reporting generated or informed by this conference. Send your story links to Cindy MacDonald, SEJ's Web content manager.
