Why work at A\J?

Alternatives Journal's role in providing Canadian environmental journalism is becoming increasingly valuable and relevant to Canadian citizens as environmental issues like climate change become more urgent and precarious with each passing year. That said, it's important to do whatever we can to support A\J. That's why I decided to work for Alternatives, because they are doing important work.
