For the past several months, we’ve been working with an amazing team of reporters, designers, and editors to produce a podcast exploring the idea of “disaster collectivism” or how communities come together and share resources during relief efforts. We’ve uncovered some remarkable stories hidden beneath the surface of natural disasters that have struck communities in New York, California, and Puerto Rico. You can listen to the first episode here: Radical approaches to disaster relief in New York. The second episode is available here: How Puerto Ricans are restoring power to the people. And the third is here: The impact of Northern California fires on the undocumented community.
We are interested in learning if you’ve been involved in any disaster relief efforts in your local community. No matter how small or large the extent of the disaster or your level of involvement in recovery efforts, we believe sharing these stories about how people collaboratively uplift their communities in the aftermath of natural disasters will inspire many others to do the same.
