Seeking Communications/Public Relations Volunteer

ORGANIZATION: Disaster Accountability Project

We're seeking assistance with Communications/PR for pitching and media outreach.

SmartResponse curates localized "How to Help" lists to help donors make more informed decisions about where to donate when disasters happen.

We want this data utilized by media -- to inform their "how to help" lists.

This is a highly rewarding activity -- if more support ($$) reaches the local organizations on the ground after disasters, people will get help faster, it'll be more effective/efficient = less suffering and fewer lives lost.

We need help:

* Engaging more journalists.
* Writing more Op-Eds.
* Building media lists.
* Pitching stories/interviews.

About Disaster Accountability Project


4402 Bestor Dr, Rockville, MD 20853, US

Mission Statement

Disaster Accountability Project saves lives and reduces suffering by maximizing the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of disaster preparedness, response, relief, and recovery through oversight, transparency, 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.
