Who We Are

The Liberty Independent Media Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit venture formed to create and encourage participation in efforts to record cultural, historical, and creative efforts in the form of video documentaries and stories for print and web, with a special emphasis on people overcoming adversity.

The Liberty Project provides a forum for individuals with their own media projects and seeks out interesting people and events for our own coverage efforts. By broadening the newsgathering force with citizen-journalists and those with something to share, we hope to expand the definition of news to include people of all backgrounds and help to establish lost connections with the broad community of humanity.

Opportunities for Correspondents

If I share with you my story, will you share your dollar with me?

Part of the Liberty Independent Media Project's mission is to provide a means for both professional journalists and citizen correspondents to offer news and feature stories, as well as audio and video projects. Through a news service, the Liberty Project also allows other print and digital media outlets to purchase content. Two-thirds of any income from those sales will go back to the original writers and producers.
