Nothing About Florida is Simple:
Finding Common Ground Through Fair and Balanced Journalism
Florida is facing unprecedented environmental challenges. We see our state’s vulnerabilities in climate change, which manifest in climbing temperatures, rising sea levels, worsening storms and the spread of emergent diseases. Coupled with the pressures from unbounded population growth, increasing tourism, intensive agriculture, habitat fragmentation and myriad other factors, our state’s natural systems are in a precarious balance.
Now more than ever, Florida deserves a publication that contextualizes and casts a critical eye on the environmental issues characterizing our state.
Enter: The Marjorie, an online publication that fills the niche for in-depth, thoughtful and sustained reporting on the state’s environment and social justice issues.
Long after environmental stories are swept away in the daily news cycle, we strive to help Floridians better understand and find common ground on some of the most pressing environmental and social justice issues of our time. We do this by:
• Showcasing diverse and underrepresented perspectives in our storytelling
• Providing important context and giving readers the background information they need to fully understand an issue
• Highlighting workable solutions to Florida's complex challenges
We believe there is great potential for Floridians to become more connected through their care, concern and desire to protect the environment. In this presentation, we will share how we have worked to build and cultivate those connections through our storytelling.
