IMG_0109Orlind Cooper is a Liberian multimedia journalist, social advocate, and champion of gender equality. He is passionate about not only using visual storytelling to positively impact the people’s lives, but also teaching young Liberians to become journalists. Through the 2017-2018 Accountability Incubator, he will help a strong cadre of young, female citizens develop into visual storytellers.  Participants in the Visual Storytellers initiative create stories on key electoral issues (including violence, education, water, sanitation, health, and infrastructure development) that affect marginalized communities. Then the Visual Storytellers will take their stories to locals leaders, ask them how they plan to solve the outlined issues, and hold them accountable to the promises they make through continuous follow-up on social media and other publications.
