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.
We work on behalf of courageous clients in areas such as unlawful detention, gender-based violence, forced evictions, prison conditions, race discrimination, criminal justice, and more.  We develop high quality, tactically sophisticated media advocacy projects that can be used in the courtroom, in legislative offices, within our clients’ communities, and more broadly in the public.
Job Description:
N-Map is looking for a part-time Program Intern in our NYC office! N-Map is a young and 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 & film 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 12 hours/week.

Qualifications:
  • Interest in human rights advocacy
  • Experience with social media platforms
  • Strong research skills with an ability to synthesize data
