Call for Detroit heat reporting partners

If you appreciate our in-depth reporting and you can help us pay for it, please become a recurring donor to Planet Detroit.

There’s little doubt. The news this month is scary. Wildfires and massive heat waves in the west, floods close to home, disease outbreaks that may be linked to the weather.

We’re looking to report on what it’s like to navigate heat in Metro Detroit this summer, and we’re partnering with the nonprofit EcoWorks to recruit reporting volunteers to help us. You’ll work with Planet Detroit journalists to measure temperature in your home and environment throughout the day, reporting on how you’re feeling and what you’re seeing in your neighborhood. This is a significant commitment, so we will be offering compensation to volunteers.

If you’d like to learn more, please fill out this intake form.
