Don't Wait for the Quake

Dec 22, 2015

The UO School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) recently held a forum in Portland to help Oregonians prepare for "the big one." The SOJC’s “Don’t Wait for the Quake” event, hosted in partnership with OPB, convened a timely conversation about earthquake preparedness in Oregon.

As a catalyst for conversation, the forum featured five videos produced by SOJC Allen Hall Studios undergraduate students, each with its own angle on earthquake preparedness and recovery:

The Science Behind The Quake
Preparing Your Pet
Training Together (Pathfinder Minutemen)
Disaster Relief Trials
Lessons from California and Nepal

This project was funded by the Online News Association in collaboration with the Excellence and Ethics in Journalism Foundation, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the Knight Foundation, the Democracy Fund, and the Rita Allen Foundation.
