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.
