chikimiki is a new womenswear brand with a fun, eclectic aesthetic, based in NY.

We are looking for a design/production intern. We are a small company, so we are looking for someone who is comfortable with multiple roles- switching from one project to another quickly. Projects can be anywhere from sketching by hand and on illustrator, organizing the studio, running errands, researching, updating line sheets and flats, hand-beading and embroidering, sewing, knitting, sourcing materials ... etc.

We try to give you projects geared towards your strengths and then have you help wherever you are needed. Rest assured, this is not a "go-get-me-coffee" internship- it will be hands-on and you will be exposed to many aspects of the business. If you are a hard-worker with a positive attitude who wants to learn, then this is the place for you.

This is an unpaid internship for school credit, but will give you great experience as we are a small, creative team who invests in their interns. Start date is ASAP for the fall semester.

Organize for human rights!

The East Timor & Indonesia Action Network (ETAN) is seeking interns. Work for human rights and justice!

What is ETAN?

For more than 20 years, ETAN has worked in solidarity with the peoples of East Timor (Timor-Leste) and Indonesia. ETAN advocates justice for past rights violations, genuine self-determination for East Timor, and democratic reconstruction of one of the world's newest nations. ETAN supports human rights and democracy in Indonesia. Current projects include campaigning for justice for past human rights crimes, working to oppose military and other security assistance to Indonesia, and monitoring the human rights situation in both countries. ETAN also pays close attention to events in West Papua.

What do ETAN interns do?

ETAN interns actively assist the movement for justice in solidarity with the peoples of Indonesia and Timor-Leste (East Timor).

ETAN interns gain experience, skills and knowledge in the areas of policy and political advocacy, international politics, writing, editing, media, fundraising, and organizing.

We are small office, so intern responsibilities will vary depending on your skills and interests. These responsibilities can include research, writing and editing; maintaining and building relations with the media, other organizations and grassrootsactivists; administrative tasks; helping with ETAN's social media outreach, and monitoring and analyzing news and developments in Indonesia, West Papua, and Timor-Leste. Interns also participate in educating Congress and other decision-makers, fundraising, organizing events, and other necessary tasks.Interns will help maintain and expand ETAN's presence in social media and the internet.

Interns work in Brooklyn, although it may be possible for especially motivated interns to work from elsewhere.

Compensation

While ETAN can not pay interns, we can work with your school program for credit. We may also be able to reimburse internship-related expenses.

Background on ETAN and East Timor

What Does ETAN stand for? ETAN supports continued restriction of military assistance to Indonesia in order to support peace, justice and democracy in both countries. To this end, we work to influence the policies of the United States government and international institutions as they relate to East Timor and Indonesia. The history of U.S. support for Indonesia's illegal invasion and occupation of East Timor underlies ETAN's efforts to achieve accountability for those responsible at home and abroad for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed from 1975 onward.

Why East Timor and Indonesia? On December 7, 1975, Indonesia invaded East Timor with U.S. backing. Over the next 24 years, Indonesian military forces killed one-third of the population and devastated the country -- all with weapons and political support from Washington. In response to the 1991 Santa Cruz massacre of more than 270 East Timorese civilians, ETAN formed to campaign in the U.S. for human rights and self-determination for East Timor.

In May 1998, Indonesian dictator Suharto was forced from office in Indonesia, ending his brutal 32-year reign. In an August 1999 UN-supervised referendum, an overwhelming majority of East Timorese voted for independence. In retribution, the Indonesian military and their militia proxies killed at least 1400, raped women and girls, destroyed 75% of the country's infrastructure, and forced three-quarters of the population from their homes. On May 20, 2002, East Timor became the first independent nation of the millennium. Independent Timor-Leste is working to rebuild, establish itself, and create essential political, social, and economic institutions.

What does ETAN do now? Although East Timor is now an independent nation, many issues remain: None of the Indonesian military and police officials who planned and carried out 1999s scorched earth campaign or the 24-years of illegal occupation of East Timor have been brought to justice. ETAN continues to oppose U.S. assistance to Indonesia's military, which remains a major roadblock to reform, justice, human rights and security. Indonesia's security forces continue to engage in human rights violations in West Papua. We also work with East Timorese grassroots organizations to ensure that the developing U.S.-East Timor relationship respects East Timorese human, political, economic and environmental rights. Holding people and governments accountable for past crimes and working towards a just future for Timor and Indonesia are critical. ETAN works with U.S. activists to maintain awareness and mobilize grassroots pressure for justice and human rights in East Timor and Indonesia.

Near the end of 2011, ETAN will begin celebrating our 20th anniversary. We plan to look back at all that we have accomplished. We will also look forward and explore what solidarity means today.

Applications are accepted at any time and starting dates are flexible. To apply, please send or e-mail a cover letter, resume and writing sample along with your reasons for applying and any relevant experience to:
