A CULTURE OF SAFETY
FOR FREELANCE JOURNALISM
The ACOS Alliance is an unprecedented coalition of more than 100 news organisations, freelance journalist associations and press freedom NGOs working together to champion safe and responsible journalistic practices.
Our mission is to embed A Culture Of Safety across newsrooms and among freelance and local journalists worldwide.
We implement practical initiatives, such as safety training and resources, that help newsrooms and journalists embed a culture of safety within their everyday working practices and meet the safety standards outlined in the Freelance Journalist Safety Principles
We leverage our combined expertise and influence to develop long-term solutions to on-going safety challenges, such as affordable insurance for freelancers and local journalists
We facilitate cross-industry dialogue and collaboration to extend the impact of everyone’s work around safety and advance a culture of safety in journalism.
