2020 Editorial Calendar
January: Disaster Response & Long-Term Recovery
January 12, 2020 was the ten-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake. For January’s campaign, we created a retrospective on what makes a disaster response successful, and how to lay the foundation for both immediate and long-term recovery. We also hosted an event, Future-Proofing Global Emergency Response Systems, which included speakers from the Global Emergency Response Coalition, a lifesaving humanitarian alliance made up of eight leading U.S.-based international aid organizations, five of which are GlobalWA members.

February: Climate Justice
This topic examined the ways in which those who are already struggling with poverty, oppression and instability are being affected by climate change, and how to ensure that climate justice remains at the center of the response. As part of this campaign, GlobalWA and The Seattle Foundation hosted the former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, who presented on her foundation’s work for global climate justice.
