The Arizona Debtors Anonymous Intergroup and the international office of Debtors Anonymous are eager to work with members of the news media.
Arizona media may send requests for information and interviews with DA members in Arizona to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that representatives of media organizations that have a national or international audience (such as TV networks and national magazines) contact our international office at email@example.com.
The following statement from our international office explains the guidelines we use in our approach to interviews:
Our primary purpose is to live without incurring any unsecured debt one day at a time and to help other compulsive debtors to achieve solvency.
To that end we are cooperating in supplying you with information and/or members for you to interview. Our requirement in return is that:
- You endeavor to give a true picture of our organization,
- That you always maintain anonymity of any and all of our members,
- That you list our mailing address and our phone number, and
- That you supply us with tearsheets, cassettes or videotapes of your article or broadcasts within 5 days after they appear. (This is very important as it enables us to have additional volunteer staff available to handle mail generated by your article or program.)
Thank you for your request. We hope that we have been helpful. Please feel free to mail us for any additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
