Southerly works with communities facing environmental injustices to create the journalism, resources, and information they need to be healthier, safer, and more empowered in the places they live.

We offer the public resources in a variety of forms in addition to traditional journalism, including online and offline resources. The work depends on the community partner, the gaps we are filling, as well as funding and capacity. All of our projects are done in partnership with other news outlets, community organizations, and/or civic institutions. This allows us to amplify the voices and experiences of the people who know their home and how it’s changing.

Below are some examples of our work so far:


listening sessions
writing workshops
media training
panels + q&a


(coming soon)

SMS-based communication
