As the holiday season approaches, we reflect on a year of strides and setbacks for the Environmental Justice movement. In pivotal times like these, we turn to journalism and storytelling to understand and shape our world.
This Giving Tuesday, we're thrilled to share exciting news: The Margin, an independent media publication, has joined as a special project of People over Plastic in our collective pursuit of environmental justice through bold journalism and compelling storytelling.
Founded by Bryce Cracknell, a writer, filmmaker, and activist, The Margin amplifies the voices of those most affected by environmental injustice. Our stories delve into the insidious cycles marginalizing communities, offering a vital perspective on the intersection of social and environmental issues.
In 2022, during the 40th Anniversary of the environmental justice movement, The Margin published impactful stories recognized by The Nation magazine and earned two Anthem Awards in Sustainability, Environment & Climate. Now, we're gearing up for our next issue, slated for Summer 2024, and we need your support.
