HARTFORD — It’s that time of the year when we celebrate another journey for The Hartford Guardian as the first nonprofit, nonpartisan, hyperlocal news publication in New England and the tristate area.
The Hartford Guardian was concieved in 2002 and founded in 2004. In 2005, the Internal Revenue Service granted the Connecticut Alliance for Better Communities, Inc dba The Hartford Guardian its 501 c 3 nonprofit status. Therefore, you can make a tax-deductible contribution where 100 percent of your donation can be deducted on your tax return.
In January 2014, someone attack our news publication and our editor-in-chief, Ann Marie Adams. They vandalized her home, and our office. They also stole smart phones, laptop computers, cameras, cash and other belongings. We were held by force by unknown assailants to prevent us from being productive for three consecutive years. Then the perpetrators assaulted our faces and bodies and told us not to write or speak about race in America.
It was a hate crime. More importantly, it was media suppression that demands national and international attention.
Without Adams, our publication cannot function daily. She is the founder of this coveted news organization and she helps supervise a staff of six individuals and several freelancers.
Several other nonprofit organizations used CABC, Inc dba The Hartford Guardian as a model in New England and the tristate area.
The Hartford Guardian focuses on news and issues in Hartford and beyond.
If you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today.
Support The Hartford Guardian and ensure we reach our #NewsMatch goal of $20, 000.
