BURNED: A Story of Resilience
How do you rebuild and recover after a disaster? In April 2022, Northern New Mexico was hit by the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Fire, which became the largest and most destructive fire in the state’s history. “Burned” tells the human story of how this extreme weather event affected Northern New Mexico communities and how local families and leaders are coming together to rebuild and recover in the face of climate disruption.
“Climate Disruption New Mexico: A Changing Climate & Landscape” is a video storytelling project to share the human side of how extreme weather events and climate change is affecting New Mexico. It serves as a call-to-action to raise awareness, inspire change, support communities and address the growing threats facing our state. From raging forest fires to devastating floods, New Mexico is facing a crisis that threatens the lives and livelihoods of its residents. This project will take an in-depth look at how our communities are being impacted, and what we can do to support them.
