“Code Red: Baltimore’s Climate Divide” is an investigative project reporting on the relationship between climate change and poverty, examining the price that residents of “urban heat islands” pay, whether in chronic illnesses, higher crime rates or poverty. The project was a collaboration between Merrill College of Journalism and NPR. In addition to the website, stories aired on NPR, were distributed by the AP and picked up by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun and other national news organizations.
I worked with Merrill graduate student Camila Velloso on the design and build of the site. I created many of the project’s infographics and data visualization and art directed/edited those created by students Amina Lampkin and Maris Medina.
This project won the The National Press Foundation’s 2019 Innovative Storytelling Award.
