Once upon a time when someone asked "how's the weather" they were making polite conversation. Today, we are plagued by continual weather crises of historic proportions that require continued attention to news about the weather. This online auction is raising money to support "Against the Odds: The Power of Community to Overcome", a multi-platform media project to examine how we cope with the new reality of frequent, devastating natural disasters. The project, created and produced by our associate, Dr. Susan J. Eddington, is anchored by a documentary, filmed in Texas, Florida, and Louisiana, the top three states in the U.S. to be affected by declared disasters. In the film we will share the stories of people who have lived through repeated natural disasters, how they cope, and how communities and government adapt to this new reality. We intend to tell the story with a focus on how people and communities recover and develop resilience as we work together to build a more sustainable future. Your support will help us achieve that goal.
