What is the BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society

The BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society was founded by families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death in response to the biggest human rights issue facing the province today. Our goal is to modernize British Columbia’s antiquated wrongful death legislation, which predates confederation (1846). BC is presently the last of all the provinces, including the Yukon, yet to have undertaken this critical legislative modernization to allow for dignity, value, and protections for all its citizens under the law. Entirely volunteer-run non-profit, the Society has rallied the public to submit over 12,000 petition signatures as of March 2021 to our elected officials and has been featured on Global News, CTV, CBC, CKNW, and many more media outlets. This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience and mentorship by leaders in the legal advocacy and human rights community.

The Media Outreach Coordinator Duties

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

#1 Coordinating contact with bereaved families and their local media to tell their story with the wrongful death legislative reform perspective.

#3 Following up with local media and updating reporters/journalists with where the campaign is presently at, and to ascertain further reporting/publishing opportunities.

The Type of Person We’re Looking for
