About Us

Outsider Media Foundation is a 501(c)(3) journalistic nonprofit based in Goffstown, New Hampshire, and founded in 2023. Our goal is to enhance public understanding of contemporary politics and encourage informed civic participation through educational articles, informative analyses, and other forms of useful content.

We want to help create a more comprehensive and inclusive conversation by increasing public awareness of the diverse voices shaping our society. To achieve this goal, we examine, evaluate, and report on the daily news and activities of political groups and public figures, particularly those not frequently discussed elsewhere, often from a grassroots perspective.

We firmly believe that access to information is essential for confidently engaging with the American electoral system. To that end, we work to ensure that such information is accessible to all who seek it out. We want people to feel more confident and informed about the civic options available to them and are committed to maintaining the highest standards of transparency, accuracy, and impartiality to guarantee that confidence.
