EHRP Feature Named Finalist in Climate Change Journalism Awards

Sierra Crane Murdoch’s “Perfect Storm“—an EHRP-supported feature published in Harper’s Magazine—was recently announced as a finalist for Best Feature in the inaugural Covering Climate Now Journalism Awards. Here’s how the judges described Murdoch’s piece:

This story took readers on a journey to one of the many places on the frontlines of the climate crisis—the US territory of the Northern Mariana Islands. Through powerful on-the-ground reporting with a focus on environmental justice, this piece elevated the voices of the people of the Northern Mariana Islands, while also highlighting the universality of climate change and the tough decisions many populations will face in the near future: to stay or leave.

Murdoch’s piece is one of 39 finalists that judges selected from nearly 600 entries submitted from 38 countries across the world. The awards will be hosted by NBC News’ Al Roker and Savannah Sellers in early October.
