We’re building an informed virtual community around disaster preparedness, resiliency, and recovery efforts. Join us!

Since I launched this newsletter in April 2020, countless people across the United States have been impacted by life-changing disasters, and our very understanding of what a disaster is has been redefined by the Covid-19 pandemic. As a journalist, I have the incredible opportunity to hear from experts and survivors directly, and I try to bring you with me into these conversations through My World’s on Fire.

By donating, you’re helping me travel to under-reported areas affected by disasters, interview dozens of people each month, and compile deeply-reachered, fact-checked explainers to answer your questions. Plus, your support makes sure all of this reporting remains free for all to read.
