The ACOS Alliance (A Culture Of Safety Alliance) is a unique global coalition of news organisations, journalist associations and press freedom NGOs working together to champion safe and responsible journalism practices.
The Alliance’s mission is to embed a culture of safety within journalism so that independent media and journalists globally play their essential role in upholding democracy.
The ACOS Alliance believes that safety is a prerequisite for a strong, independent media – the backbone of democracy. It focuses on the safety of freelance and local journalists because they play an essential role within newsgathering and are the most vulnerable in a profession that is increasingly at risk of violence, threats and harassment.
As a growing global coalition of 150+ organisations, the Alliance works collaboratively to democratise access to safety training opportunities, resources and innovative solutions, and enable newsrooms and journalists to meet the standards outlined in the Freelance Journalist Safety Principles – the blueprint of best safety practice endorsed by all ACOS signatories. It facilitates dialogue, collaborations and partnerships that advance innovation, build resilience, raise standards and create long-term systemic change in journalism safety culture and practice.
