Voices exists to help you. We believe our key task is to bring attention to your work and to empower you to become better spokespeople for civil justice. We hope you will continue to help us do so in 2016.

Oh, wow. I didn’t know you did that! That would be really helpful to us.

Our central mission at Voices for Civil Justice is to build a national identity for civil legal aid. Here is a quick list of the ways we most often do that, with the essential help of our partners in the JusticeVoices network. We hope the list will prompt you to think, “Oh, I could use some of that, too.” If it does, please get in touch.

  • Developing potential pitches and placements based on lawsuits, legislative work, reports (and more on reports), or advocacy campaigns
  • Talking points for interviews, both for written outlets and broadcast
  • Messaging guidance and presentation preparation (including for on-camera appearances) for  interviews, speeches, panels, or any public appearance
  • Help with writing and placing opinion pieces  such as op-eds, letters to the editor, and editorial board memos
  • Digital strategy, including feedback on websites, infographics, and social media tactics
  • Capacity-building resources for media relations, best practices for pitching stories, drafting press releases, advisories, etc.
  • Overall communications planning

This list isn’t exhaustive. That’s why we also encourage you to reach out and tell us what communications and media tools you need. If there’s anything we’ve learned so far, it’s this: If one of you think something would be helpful, there are a lot of other people who need that help, too.

Voices exists to help you. We believe our key task is to bring attention to your work and to empower you to become better spokespeople for civil justice. We hope you will continue to help us do so in 2016.
