2015 was a transformative year at N-Map. Our team of lawyers, advocates, and filmmakers worked across the globe to put the voices of people who have suffered human rights abuses at the center of advocacy and litigation. We completed 55 tactical media advocacy videos over the last year to support our frontline partners working in Mexico, Nigeria, India, South Africa, the United States, and the Republic of Georgia.
Our work on misdemeanor bail with the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund was featured on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver; we created a video out of deposition footage to give voice to the prisoners who led the landmark agreement ending indeterminate long-term solitary confinement in California for our partner the Center for Constitutional Rights; and partnered with Fundación Para La Justicia to bring the voices of families of disappeared migrants into the highest levels of international policy making between Central American countries and Mexico.
On Human Rights Day, I am pleased to share a short highlight reel of N-Map’s 2015 projects.
Thank you to our incredible partners and supporters that made this work possible.
Heading into 2016, we are gearing up for even more exciting and impactful work as we complete and implement our first strategic plan; build a major storytelling platform aimed at preventing abuses connected with extractive industries; launch a media-based advocacy tool to augment the current criminal justice reform movement in the US at South by Southwest Interactive; and many, many more initiatives to come.
As the year draws to a close, I hope you will consider making a donation to support N-Map. We believe all people have power when given the chance to tell their stories. Your support allows N-Map to make this possible in new and powerful ways.
From the entire N-Map team, please accept our best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
