We need an audit of our current communications materials to gain a greater understanding of our strengths and weaknesses as we launch into rebranding the organization. We want to understand where we can improve as we develop a new communications plan to better represent our member programs and the issues faced by victim-survivors of domestic violence.
We already have a brand messaging brief for a very targeted audience (high-end donors and foundations). We have a Twitter account with 1,167 followers, and a Facebook page with 7,614 'likes'. We also have a small list of press contacts, a website, and a public awareness campaign with accompanying materials. We're excited for a pivot and are happy to provide any materials you may need!
Our office joy comes from Rascal, a trained therapy dog.
