Seeking Communications/PR/Op-Ed Writing Volunteer

Disaster Accountability Project

I'm seeking assistance with media communications/Press Relations/Op-Ed Writing!

There's lots of messaging needed with the current COVID-19 outbreak. I'd like to be writing weekly (or more frequent) op-eds. But I need help with writing, placement, and other media engagement.

We also have SmartResponse.org, collecting information on how local organizations are responding around the world. We need to help them with outreach so donors can more easily find these organizations and support them directly.

I'm looking for volunteers with existing communications/PR/related writing experience.

Mission Statement

Disaster Accountability Project saves lives and reduces suffering after disasters by maximizing the impact of preparedness, response and relief through citizen oversight and engagement, policy research and advocacy, and public education.

DAP is the leading nonprofit organization that provides long-term independent oversight of disaster management systems.

DAP engages a dedicated community to advance policy research and advocacy, promote transparency, and encourage the public to participate in oversight, community-based organizing, and discussions about disaster preparedness and relief.

Dedicated citizen oversight is necessary to ensure resources dedicated to preparedness, relief, and recovery are effectively utilized, communities are sufficiently engaged and more resilient, and best practices and lessons learned are implemented so mistakes are not repeated.

Prior to the creation of the Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), there was no dedicated, independent oversight of the agencies and organizations responsible for these critical life-saving responsibilities.
