Intern with ETAN
Organize for human rights!
The East Timor & Indonesia Action Network (ETAN) is seeking interns.
Work for human rights and justice!
What is ETAN?
For 20 years, ETAN has worked in solidarity with the peoples of East
Timor (Timor-Leste) and Indonesia. ETAN advocates justice for past
rights violations, genuine self-determination for East Timor, and
democratic reconstruction of one of the world's newest nations. ETAN
supports human rights and democracy in Indonesia. Current projects
include campaigning for justice for past human rights crimes, working
to oppose military assistance to Indonesia, and monitoring the human
rights situation in both countries. ETAN also pays close attention to
events in West Papua.
What do ETAN interns do?
ETAN interns actively assist the movement for justice in solidarity
with the peoples of Indonesia and Timor-Leste (East Timor).
ETAN interns gain experience, skills and knowledge in the areas of
policy and political advocacy, international politics, writing,
editing, media, fundraising, and organizing.
We are small office, so intern responsibilities will be varied
depending on your skills and interests. These responsibilities can
include research, writing and editing; maintaining and building
relations with the media, other organizations and grassroots
activists; administrative tasks; and monitoring and analyzing news
and developments in Indonesia and East Timor. Interns also
participate in educating Congress and other decision-makers,
fundraising, organizing events, and other necessary tasks. Interns
will help maintain and expand ETAN's presence in social media and the internet.
Interns work in Brooklyn, although it may be possible for especially
motivated interns to work from elsewhere.
While ETAN can not pay interns, we can work with your school program
for credit. We may also be able to reimburse internship-related expenses.
