Our New Documentary on Puerto Rico and #HurricaneMaria

by Will

The official death toll of Hurricane Maria is up, again. And the news comes as we release a bold project from the University of Michigan, based on our on-the-ground investigation.

I recently led a team from the University of Michigan to investigate the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. We conducted more than 30 interviews with a wide range of people across the island, and we were also joined by a team from Notre Dame.

The result is a free, online learning event called “Listening to Puerto Rico.” You can sign up for the Teach-Out here, and join learners from all over the world. Here is a message from the presidents of the University of Michigan and University of Notre Dame about why we have undertaken this new project.

As part of this project, we also released a documentary with never-before-seen footage exposing the humanitarian crisis there.

I’m so proud to have been part of this project, and I hope it will be an example for future ways that universities can engage in pressing social justice issues using journalistic techniques.

Please SHARE and help expose what’s happening!

Thank you!
Will
