Voice of Witness


Mi María: Surviving the Storm is a new oral history book that amplifies Puerto Ricans' first-person stories in the aftermath of Hurricane María, exploring how communities come together in the wake of disaster, how government neglect impacts recovery, and how precarity is exacerbated for those on the frontlines of the climate crisis. There are also corresponding free lesson plans available for educators to bring these narratives into the classroom and teach about the climate crisis, colonialism, representation, migration, disaster response, and more.
