Organization Description 

The Uproot Project is a network of and for environmental journalists of color. We have a growing national membership, composed of journalists from across national and regional news media institutions with a goal of bringing these diverse voices to the forefront of environmental journalism. Uproot is dedicated to advancing the careers of journalists of color who’ve been historically underrepresented in environmental or science journalism, imbuing the field with critical and fresh perspectives. We were inspired by other projects, like the Ida B. Wells Society, that uplift underrepresented journalists. The Uproot Project was founded in 2019 by a group of environmental journalists seeking change in the industry and launched publicly in March 2021.

Grist is a founding partner of Uproot, currently serving as its operational home. This position will be an employee of Grist but will work exclusively with and report to the Uproot Director. Grist is a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. Grist’s goal is to use the power of storytelling to illuminate the way toward a better world, inspire millions of people to walk that path with Grist, and show that the time for action is now.
