Shortly after the Mexico City September 19th Earthquake, a group of journalists, activists, and techies put together an online platform to harness the eyes and ears of hundreds of citizens of Mexico City. The volunteers fanned across the city, some on bikes, reporting back data which were posted on a website, Verificado19S. Its goal was to “channel the desire to help to places that need it,” according to a video posted by its organizers a day after the tremor.

This is a video I narrate made to thank the thousands of volunteers in Verificado19s, made possibly with the images of Santiago Arau.
