As an annual tradition, we’ve compiled a list of stories for you, in no particular order, that highlights the most reflective and important reporting from Florida this year. We salute these hard-working journalists who endeavor to tell the critical stories of our beloved state.
No one tells a better Florida story than the people who know this state intimately — either from living here or from engaging with Florida issues in a thoughtful way. As we reflect on a chaotic and confusing year, we draw inspiration from stories written by Florida women that we admire. Here are some of our favorite stories from 2020, presented in no particular order, and why we love them.
If you know us, you know: we tell Florida stories. Though it sounds straightforward, this is a deceptively complicated task. In this editorial, we make the case for breaking down barriers around yourself during this divisive time. We ask you to focus on what we all have in common: Florida’s environment.
Earlier this year, we launched Dispatches from a Sinking State, a series of first-hand accounts of the environmental changes Florida women are witnessing in their regions. But for these essays to be an accurate reflection of the struggles that coincide with climate change, they must represent a broad variety of voices. That’s where you come in.
