Building refuge for federal climate & environmental data

Data Refuge Stories

Data Refuge helps to build refuge for federal data and supports climate and environmental research and advocacy. We are committed to fact-based arguments. Data Refuge preserves the facts we need at a time of ongoing climate change. Read more about the data in this catalog on our About page.
Data Refuge launched November 2016 in Philadelphia to draw attention to how climate denial endangers federal environmental data. With the help of thousands of civic partners and volunteers, the project has rapidly spread to over fifty cities and towns across the country. Now, Data Refuge is building a storybank to document how data lives in the world – and how it connects people, places, and non-human species. Find out more about Data Stories from Data Refuge.
