Naomi Abraham has worked in the make-the-world-great sector for more than 15 years. From leading communications for an international human rights organization to managing a multimillion-dollar immigrant civic engagement fund, Naomi’s career has been focused on developing smart and creative vehicles that work to bridge the gap between the world we live in and the one we want to live in.
In 2010, she transitioned from working in philanthropy to communications because of her ardent belief in the power of storytelling. Since then she has worked with various human rights and social justice organizations in the U.S. and around the world. Most recently she was the communications director for the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience and before that a senior communications associate with PolicyLink.
As a communications consultant, she has worked with groups such as New Narratives: Africans Reporting Africa, United Nations Population Fund, Video Volunteers, ColorofChange, and more. She has also worked as a freelance journalist publishing articles on human rights and social issues. In 2010, she worked with Women’s eNews on a series of stories covering maternal health and during that time she was also awarded a fellowship with the Ford Foundation and the International Center For Journalists to report on LGBTQ human rights abuses in Uganda and Kenya.
Today, in addition to her work with Wonder, Naomi is mom to a fantastic little person and a media and storytelling consultant on several exciting projects. She holds graduate degrees in international relations and journalism, respectively from City University of New York and Columbia University.
