New Media Advocacy Project

Brooklyn, United States
Joined November 2016
Presence in: United States
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights, Corruption, Criminal Justice, Education, Environmental Justice, Gender-based violence, Governance, Housing & Sanitation, Land & Natural Resources, Other

The New Media Advocacy Project (N-Map) advances human rights by merging law with multimedia storytelling to bring the voices of people who have suffered abuse into the halls of power. We produce tactical, audience-focused videos designed to win cases and campaigns, impact policy, mobilize communities, and make the law and policy accessible to everyone. In partnership with human rights defenders, we help survivors use what is often their most powerful tool to rise above oppression: their stories.
