A YR Media series on young community eco-leaders featured on Grist and Next City.
Meet three young adults who are leading innovative environmental justice solutions in their communities in New Orleans, Chicago, and Oakland. These profiles were published in collaboration with YR Media, Grist and Next City. Grist is a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. Next City is a news outlet with a nonprofit model that publishes solutions to the problems that oppress people in cities, inspiring social, economic and environmental change through journalism and events around the world. The photographs for the project were created through a collaboration between YR Media reporters and CatchLight Local, a new collaborative model for visual journalism that is advancing trust and representation in local media.
