HERE AT THE XYLOM, WE GROW SCIENCE WITH WORDS.
We're a Gen-Z-led nonprofit exploring the communities influencing and shaped by science, through our original features, essays, and multimedia coverage. You might've heard of us when:
the City of Atlanta deleted a press release after we fact-checked their numerous false claims about the "environmental stewardship" of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center ("Cop City"),
we became the first non-Indian outlet to report about the devastating ecological and economical impacts of the Mumbai Coastal Road as it approaches completion, or
our contributor Fayth Tan won The National Academies Eric and Wendy Schmidt Awards for Excellence in Science Communications.
This is a space for our musings, reader submissions, and a curated collection of science stories you have to read, with a focus on the American South! Our work is not free, so consider giving an optional donation to keep our lights on.
The Xylom is a member newsroom of Covering Climate Now, the INN Network (including its Rural News Network), LION Publishers, and OptOut News. We are fiscally sponsored by the Open Collective Foundation, a 501(c)(3) registered in California.
