As a Social Media and Communications intern at the Colibrí Center for Human Rights, I had the opportunity to work closely with my fellow interns and internship coordinators on various social media campaigns, many of which will be posted to the Center’s social media platforms by the end of this year. My internship partner and I researched experiences of Indigenous migrants throughout the physical migration process and their experiences in the U.S., especially as they navigate language barriers and inaccessibility to systems of support. After completing this research, we created accessible and informative content for our Instagram campaign for the Center. Additionally, I participated in several workshops where we received critical feedback from our peers and offered suggestions regarding their campaigns and posts. We completed extensive research regarding the Center’s previous social media activity, current events, and the best practices to use when creating accessible and engaging content about such significant topics.
