Adam Stofsky

Founder of New Media Advocacy Project

Adam Stofsky is the founder and executive director of the New Media Advocacy Project (N-Map). He discovered the power of new media advocacy when working in Nigeria on a massive forced eviction case, which had been stalled in court for fourteen years. He produced a documentary, advised by local lawyers, which allowed the evictees to tell their story and advance their case.

Adam continued to develop his new media advocacy ideas at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, where he used new media to secure positive results for Katrina victims, employment discrimination plaintiffs, and minority voters.

He is also CEO at Briefly, a company that makes legal information easy to understand.

He is a graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Law School.
