Help Inspire and Support Environmental Journalists

ABC News reporter Stephanie EbbsAt ABC News, Stephanie Ebbs is the only person dedicated to covering environmental issues full time, which she finds frustrating at times, because she knows she can't report on all of the important environmental stories that deserve national coverage, and convincing her editors that these stories matter isn’t always easy. That’s why Stephanie found this year’s SEJ conference in Flint, Michigan — her first time at our annual event — to be the most practical and motivating conference she's ever attended. Read more and please give now.
