TGIJP needs more people with Adobe Photoshop or other software/apps to help us design fun, engaging or powerful sharable graphics. We need volunteers who can help us with longer timeline and planned projects (working closely with fundraising team, etc) and also on the fly reactive or campaign graphics and the occasional logo re-organization for sweatpants or tshirts, etc. Additionally, we will need people with graphic design skills interested in supporting grant or action reports, annual reports, secondary folks for Stiletto if we expand to more issues, etc. If you’ve got the skills and will be honest about your capacity and time, then we want to hear from you.
Stiletto Newsletter Editor
This position is a 1.5 year commitment, and there is space for a couple people to participate. The first third will be learning the process and working closely with a TGIJP staff member to drive the production of an issue of Stiletto, followed by a second round where the volunteer editor will drive the process, perhaps with an assistant or small volunteer team. The third round will be to train and explicitly pass to the next editor cycle. The goal is for the editor and editing team to build in working with and co-editing with member-leaders from TGIJP and corresponding with member-leaders inside prisons, jails and detention centers for content and leadership on the issue. As the editing team capacity increases, into 2017/2018 the potential to produce more than two issues can be considered.
