The Uproot Project is open to journalists of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds who share its goal of uplifting and supporting journalists of color who have been underrepresented in the journalism industry for far too long. We are currently financially and operationally supported by Grist, a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. Along with Grist’s support, our work is also made possible because of further generous donors.

Our first priority is to build a community of storytellers who can transform the narrative of one of the most pressing issues of our time.
