Global Voices is an international, multilingual community of writers, translators, and human rights activists. Together, we leverage the power of the internet to tell stories that build understanding across borders. How do we do this?
- Report: Our multilingual newsroom team reports on people whose voices and experiences are rarely seen in mainstream media.
- Translate: Our Lingua volunteers make our stories available in dozens of languages to ensure that language is not a barrier to understanding.
- Defend: Our Advox team advocates for free speech online, paying special attention to legal, technical and physical threats to people using the internet to speak out in the public interest.
- Empower: Rising Voices provides training and mentorship to local underrepresented communities who want to tell their own stories using participatory media tools.
In addition to writing and translating stories, our community of volunteer contributors provides a breadth of local knowledge and connect Global Voices with like-minded initiatives around the world. Meet our contributors.
Media and NGO partnerships are also a key component of Global Voices’ work as a community, a media organization, and a network of free expression advocates. Learn about our partnerships.
