Stories about Announcements from December, 2010
If you’re reading this, you’re more than likely already a friend of Global Voices who believes in our mission of amplifying voices not normally heard in the mainstream media, of making it possible for global citizens to use online tools to participate fully in the lives of their communities, and of protecting freedom of expression and free access to information online. If that's indeed the case, we’d like to take some time out on this last day of 2010 to thank you for your support, and, if we may, suggest other ways you can help us do the work we do.

If you believe that what we do enriches the world, please make a donation.
