New Media Advocacy Project (NMAP) is a team of narrative strategists working at the
intersection of narrative change, movement building, and cultural engagement. Our roots are
in human rights advocacy and visual storytelling, and we work with grassroots groups to
understand the nuanced picture of beliefs, values, and behaviors that underlie entrenched and
polarizing issues. The narrative change strategies that arise from this work are informed by the
science of framing, impact measurement, and strategic distribution. In the last 10 years, we’ve
worked with more than 100 human and environmental groups in 40 countries to make
measurable impact on a range of issues, from the death penalty to indigenous rights to
corporate abuse by mining corporations.
