ABOUT MEDIA ATTENTION:
When you join NASGA, if you indicate you are interested in media attention on the “Join” form, our Research Manager will contact you and request certain documents and information so she can prepare your case for media opportunities. Be sure you fill in your case number before submitting your join form (above).
Our Research Manager will not get involved in the case itself; her goal is to gather the documents and information so we will be ready to submit cases when media contacts us with specific requirements.
Any document or information you share with our Research Manager for this purpose is kept in strict confidence.
It is imperative you consult with your attorney, if you have one, before involving media. Often, the intense focus of media attention can do wonders in desperate situations. But not always. We have also seen unscrupulous guardians dig in deeper or even retaliate by restricting or prohibiting visitation.
If your attorney is agreeable, we suggest the first step is having a short profile of the case published on our “Victims” page (this is a perk of membership). Investigative reporters often come to us after reading profiles and pre-picking a case.
