Fundraiser graphic for Max Chesnes
Max Chesnes is the environment reporter for the Tampa Bay Times, where he reports on water quality, environmental justice, obscure Florida wildlife and everything in between. More about Max.


"I wouldn't be where I'm at in my career without SEJ's guidance. After attending the annual SEJ conferences in Flint, Fort Collins and Houston, I am a far more confident environmental reporter with a wealth of data tools, sources and resources at my disposal — and it's all thanks to SEJ."

- Max Chesnes, Tampa Bay Times

Give to SEJ's Conference Diversity Travel Fellowships to help cover the costs of registration, travel, lodging and other expenses of Diversity Fellowships. Here's what past participants had to say:

  • "I would not have been able to attend without the SEJ/Uproot diversity fellowship, and I am truly grateful for it as this is easily the best conference I've been to as a newer journalist. I am truly grateful for the program and hope it can be expanded so even more people, who otherwise would not be able to, can attend."
  • "As an emerging freelance photojournalist in the midwest I have limited resources and opportunities to attend conference. This limits my ability for professional growth and networking. I would not have been able to attend the workshop without the Uproot Project Fellowship."

Give to the SEJ Members in Need Fund to help cover fee waivers and other costs of participating in SEJ programs, for members experiencing financial hardship.
