About

Join Dr. Lucy Jones, the world-renowned disaster scientist, as she provides clear, credible, scientific information needed by community members and civic leaders in times of disaster, uncertainty, and other crises. Working with both the public and private sectors, Dr. Jones seeks to increase our communities’ ability to adapt and be resilient to the dynamic changes of the world around us. Her life’s work is to understand and communicate where the greatest vulnerabilities lie and the actions we can take to reduce our risk to save lives and save money.

Dr. Jones is the go-to voice of calm and reason during destabilizing events, from tsunamis and volcanoes in the Pacific to flooding and tornadoes in the Great Plains to earthquakes and wildfires in the West… and every other calamity the world has seen in the past few decades. She has an uncommon point of view about power balance between human behavior and the natural world.

Her new weekly podcast is Getting Through It, co-hosted with community resilience expert John Bwarie. The duo were co-creators of The Great Shake-Out and worked to create sweeping policy changes in seismic safety in the City of Los Angeles and dozens of other communities across California. For Caltech in 2019, Dr. Jones and John developed and co-led the Center’s Science Activation workshop and training program.

Called the “Beyonce of Earthquakes” and the “Meryl Streep of Government Service,” by the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Jones spent the last three decades as the preeminent public voice for earthquake and disaster resilience, conducting thousands of interviews on every major news programs, including NPR and PBS, and numerous TV specials about earthquakes and disasters.

One of eight “women you should know” featured by the Los Angeles Times for International Women's Day 2017, Dr. Jones is the author of the book, The Big Ones: How Natural Disasters Have Shaped Us (and What We Can Do about Them). She is also a noted Research Associate at the Seismological Laboratory of Caltech, a post she has held since 1984.

After decades as a premier science communicator and hazard science advisor for the US Geological Survey, Dr. Jones founded the nonprofit Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society in 2016. It has become the most reliable resource for building more resilient communities in an unpredictable and chaotic world.

With your support, Dr. Jones and the Center can continue to advocate for community resilience and provide reliable, practical, scientific information to those preparing to respond to crisis. This includes city officials, state and federal agencies, neighborhood advocates, business leaders, and parents and educators.

Your support will make sure that the next disaster has a better outcome. You'll get science into the hands of decision-makers who can make decisions that actually protect and support you.

In addition to supporting the work of Dr. Jones and the Center, you'll be helping support the training of more scientists in the technique of "science activation." This training helps experts provide practical information to community members, civic leaders, and residents seeking relevant scientific insights to make decisions that improve communities.

The Dr. Lucy Jones Center is a nonprofit 501c3 as a project of Community Partners.
