The Uproot Project


The Uproot Project is a network of and for environmental journalists of color. It has a national membership composed of journalists from across national and regional media institutions. The Uproot Project is open to journalists of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds, but its goal is to uplift and support journalists of color who have been underrepresented in the journalism industry for far too long. The group is currently funded by and assisted operationally by Grist, a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. The website includes a publicly available journalist database for people seeking to connect with editors, mentors, experts, sources, and other journalists of color within the environmental space.
