Our independent media organization covers the intersection of ecology, justice, and culture in the American South. Southerly explores the complicated relationship between Southern communities and their environment — whether that’s along the Atlantic coast, in the hollers of Appalachia, on Tennessee farmland, or in the Mississippi Delta. We shed light on strong journalism and pressing stories, and provide insight and analysis about overlooked local news. In our weekly newsletter, we analyze a timely topic — from greenhouse gas emissions to water infrastructure, agriculture to the fossil fuel economy, environmental injustice in communities of color to the impacts of federal energy policy — and curate sharp, nuanced journalism from local, regional, and national news outlets.
