“The way to right wrongs is to shine the light of truth upon them.”
-Ida B. Wells
Sydney Greene is a journalist based out of Austin, Texas who enjoys covering politics, identities, gender and social justice.
Her passion in journalism is simple: to help tell the stories of underrepresented communities across our country and around the world. Sydney seeks the stories that come from the shadows of our word, uplifting the stories and characters that don’t make the mainstream news cycle. She believes that strong stories don’t come from sitting at a desk all day — they come from boots on the ground, shoe-leather reporting — a practice that is often overlooked and ignored in the current news climate.
Her work has been featured in a variety of news publications, including the USA Today, The Texas Tribune, The State Press, The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com, The Arizona Capitol Times, Teen Vogue, Planet Forward, and POLITICO. She is a graduate of Arizona State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Communications and Women and Gender Studies.
Sydney is currently a full-time reporting fellow at The Texas Tribune, where she covers state politics and policy through breaking news and enterprise stories.
