Houston, You Have a Problem: Knight-Risser Prize Symposium

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

4:15 pm

Paul Brest Hall West, 555 Salvatierra Walk, Stanford University Map

Sponsored by:
Bill Lane Center for the American West, JSK Journalism Fellowships

Please join us on Nov. 15 as we celebrate the 2017 Knight-Risser Prize winners, The Texas Tribune and ProPublica. Their story, “Hell and High Water,” was a deeply reported, interactive project revealing Houston’s severe vulnerability to hurricanes and flooding – and the government’s unwillingness to address the increasingly dire warnings of scientists.

At the symposium, the Texas Tribune’s Neena Satija and ProPublica’s Jeff Larson, members of the winning team, will be joined by a panel of journalists and policymakers for a conversation about investigative science journalism, storytelling through interactive simulations, and the outlook for vulnerable coastal communities in a time of climate change.

The event will be followed by a reception with light refreshments. Guests are asked to please RSVP using the form below.
