What is the BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society

‘In Their Name’ is the campaign of ‘The BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society’. Our goal is to modernize British Columbia’s antiquated wrongful death legislation, which predates confederation (1846). Under current legislation, the value of a human life is measured only by the deceased’s future lost income, so long as they had dependents. All other provinces, including the Yukon have long since modernized. Only in BC is everyone’s life, except for breadwinners, worthless under the law. No “worth” means no “damages” to pursue in civil court. No “damages”, means no “justice”, and accordingly no accountability for wrongdoers.

The Family Outreach Coordinator Duties

We are looking for candidate(s) to join our volunteer team, specifically to undertake the following:

#1 Reaching out and sensitively engaging with family contacts who have lost loved ones to wrongful death for vetting (legal standing), story intake, corroborative investigative document review, and final story publishing on the website with distribution to media.

#2 Utilizing a Project Management system, spreadsheets, and a Customer Relationship Management System (CRM) to compile and organize the necessary documentation (e.g. investigation reports, coroner reports, etc.) for writing family stories.

#3 Coordinating with the Family Stories Publisher to publish family stories on the website with attention to tone and clarity.

#4 Navigating and providing bereavement resources to families

#5 Project management of family stories publishing.

#6 Coordinating calls with families for purposes of coordinating story publishing, event organizing, fundraising organizing, MLA meetings, and media liaising.

The Type of Person We’re Looking for

#1 Either a student studying law OR someone in this career field looking to expand their portfolio of experience.

#2 Ambitious, hard-working, with excellent communication skills who is excited about helping change the future of the province.

#3 Someone who’s technologically proficient and is keen to learn new skills involving utilizing WordPress and a Customer Relationship Management, specifically Hubspot CRM.

#4 Results-oriented – someone who’s excited by the opportunity of being able to say they for example; worked with 50+ families, published 30 stories, had all of them featured in media, reached over 1,000,000+ British Columbians, which ultimately led to BC’s legislation being modernized. We want you to be able to note the results you achieved in your portfolio of career experience.
