The International Campaign for Tibet is searching for an experienced Communications Officer to drive strategic communications that support and advance ICT’s mission. This position will report to the President and be based in Washington, DC.

For more than 35 years, the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) has called the world’s attention to the injustices and brutalities imposed on the Tibetan people.
