How are Seattle and the Puget Sound’s communities of color and immigrant communities affected by environmental policies and politics? What can be done to address some of the inequities caused by pollution and climate change?
These are questions that we will tackle in The Seattle Globalist’s Environmental Justice Investigative Journalism Fellowship Program.
This program will be an opportunity for four early-career journalists to look into questions about environmental justice in Seattle, and to learn about investigative techniques including public records requests, crafting an interview, doing background research and more.
Funding for this program comes from the City of Seattle’s Equity and Environment Initiative.
The program is scheduled to run Nov. 18 through Jan. 27. Fellows will receive a a stipend of up to $2,000 for their participation and completion of the program.
We encourage everyone with an interest in environmental or investigative reporting to apply, and especially those interested in environmental justice. The ideal candidates will have some experience creating media and can provide samples of work in writing, podcasts, photography or video.
Fill out the following form by Nov. 8 for consideration. Those on mobile devices can click here to fill out the form.
And if you have an environmental justice story that our team should investigate, please let us know about it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
