Mid-Atlantic journalists have much to share with you about their corner of the world: the huge national battle over over fracking and LNG versus renewable energy, such as wind and solar; the paradox of a city that wants to be modern and future-facing but is held back by issues of poverty, environmental racism, infrastructure challenges and development problems; flooding and sea level rise; pollution and land management; and much more. Come to Philadelphia and let your community help you figure out which stories demand your attention, learn how to tell them and find the support you need through the tough road that lies ahead.
