Project Director, Latin America Resource Center
The Open Technology Institute is creating a Latin American Resource Center as part of its Internet Freedom & Human Rights program. The Project Director will promote co-ordinated Latin American civil society advocacy by bringing together human rights and digital activists.
This position requires a highly-skilled regional expert to develop the Regional Resource Center. He or she will conduct outreach with civil society groups and leaders throughout Latin America and develop a feasible, targeted plan to establish this Resource Center for the benefit of such participants.
The Regional Resource Center will coordinate domestic, regional and international advocacy activities and serve as a centralized repository for materials for Latin American civil society groups to work within on several internet freedom goals.

The Project Director will work within New America’s Foundation Open Technology Institute and report to Internet Freedom & Human Rights program Director Gene Kimmelman.
