The Article 20 Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to defend and advance the human right to freedom of peaceful assembly worldwide. Through direct action, education, research and legal services, the Article 20 Network encourages the proliferation of public demonstrations and fights back against obstacles and threats to our human right to peacefully assemble.
Are you interested a volunteer experience that will make a genuine difference? Would you like to play an important role in protecting the rights of public protesters? Would you like to work to help bridge the gap between protesters and police?
The Article 20 Network seeks a volunteer to coordinate the creation of a training module that will educate law enforcement officials about the human rights framework of the freedom of peaceful assembly. The program’s objective is to make protesting safer and freer and, thus a more common practice of civic participation.
Successful candidates do not have to be content experts; training will be provided. We are looking for a passionate self-starter with solid project management experience.
The Law Enforcement Training Coordinator will
- Work with human rights experts to outline the content of the training.
- Work with law enforcement partners to marry the program’s outline with the realities of being a police officer
- Reach out to municipalities in order to obtain research and statistics about peaceful assemblies in the communities
- Conceive and project manage core training materials, ancillary materials and other products necessary to a successful training.
- Establish criteria for prioritizing the police departments that should conduct the training
- Identify and contact law enforcement departments about participating in the training
- Coordinate with the Chief Operating Officer on identifying resources required for the program’s success as well as financial metrics
- Create a project plan for all of the above and hold the project to its timeline.
This is a 180 day opportunity that may lead to employment with the organization. Please contact us with the LAW ENFORCEMENT in the subject:
