Location: NYC, United States
Apply email: Not Specified
Start Date: 15-July-2020
Closing Date: 12-August-2020

New Media Advocacy Project (NMAP) is a team of narrative strategists working at the intersection of narrative change, movement building, and cultural engagement. Our roots are in human rights advocacy and visual storytelling, and we work with grassroots groups to understand the nuanced picture of beliefs, values, and behaviors that underlie entrenched and polarizing issues. The narrative change strategies that arise from this work are informed by the science of framing, impact measurement, and strategic distribution. In the last 10 years, we’ve worked with more than 100 human and environmental groups in 40 countries to make measurable impact on a range of issues, from the death penalty to indigenous rights to corporate abuse by mining corporations.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
NMAP is committed to building and maintaining an inclusive, anti-racist, multicultural workplace. As a human rights organization that addresses systemic injustices in all facets of society, we strive to promote the kind of equitable world we fight for alongside our global partners. We see diversity, equity, and inclusion as a core part of our mission and responsibility.
