New Media Advocacy Project Description
The New Media Advocacy Project (N-Map) is a non-profit organization that combats human rights violations by using digital video and other media to strengthen social justice advocacy in courts, legislatures, and communities. N-Map’s lawyers, advocates, and media professionals help human rights organizations integrate this new technology directly into their strategies, enabling them to win their cases and achieve their clients’ goals more effectively and efficiently.
N-Map is looking for a part-time Human Rights Intern in our NYC office! We are a small non-profit organization, which will allow our intern to get a deep look into many facets of our organization: communications, administration, human rights law and advocacy, media production, and grant writing.
The ideal candidate has a deep commitment to human rights and public service, with some knowledge of media and film production. Applicants must be able to commit at least 18 hours/week.
