Interns will assist the Media Relations Unit, which raises public awareness of human rights issues by positioning Amnesty International in the news media, developing media strategies for campaigns, cultivating relationships with reporters and editors and responding to breaking news. The interns may also work on initiatives undertaken by other units within the broader Communications department, such as writing articles for the Amnesty International Magazine in collaboration with the Publications unit.

Interns support the Media Relations Unit by tracking coverage of AIUSA placements, developing lists of relevant journalists, researching media outlets, supporting press conferences, writing internal documents, and drafting external materials to be released to the press and participating in various projects that present AIUSA's concerns through the media. The most competitive candidates for a Media Relations internship will possess excellent writing and oral communication skills, attention to detail, and a strong familiarity with the U.S. news media. Experience or education in journalism, media studies or public relations is a plus. Computer literacy, including knowledge of Microsoft Word and Internet applications, is required.
