journalRAGE and Out For Equality have signed a partnership agreement that gives the US-based organization the right to represent it as a fiscal sponsor in the United States.
Journal RAGE Media Inc is a not-for-profit online platform based in Liberia whose mission is to report properly, fairly, and independently on the LGBTQ+ community in Liberia. It was founded in 2019 by Gboko Stewart.
The agreement allows Out For Equality to accept financial contributions on journalRAGE’s behalf. These contributions go towards the growth and development of journalRAGE in Liberia and across the subregion.
Gboko Stewart, Curator-in-Chief of journalRAGE, said he is pleased about the partnership the organizations have signed.
“We are excited about partnering with Out for Equality to further our goal of spreading proper human rights reportage within Liberia and across the subregion. Funding has been one of our biggest challenges, and with OFE’s status as a 501(C) in the United States, we are assured that this agreement will be able to bridge the gap.”
Brian Rusch, Executive Director of Out For Equality expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership in a statement.
“Out for Equality was created with the mission of providing strategy and resources to grassroot LGBTQ+ organizations around the globe. I am thrilled about this new partnership with journalRAGE as the kind of honest, fearless reporting they do on issues facing the LGBT+ community in Liberia drives awareness which is the first step to securing human rights for that community.”
