Global Voices

Global voices: is a community of more than 300 bloggers and translators around the world who work together to share reports from blogs and citizen media of people who are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media. Its goals are:

• Aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online. Through the site, they develop tools, institutions and relationships that will help all voices, everywhere, to be heard.

• Call attention to the most interesting conversations and perspectives emerging from citizens’ media around the world by linking to text, photos, podcasts, video and other forms of grassroots citizens’ media.

• Facilitate the emergence of new citizens’ voices through training, online tutorials, and publicizing the ways in which open-source and free tools can be used safely by people around the world to express themselves.

• Advocate for freedom of expression around the world and protect the rights of citizen journalists to report on events and opinions without fear of censorship or persecution.
