2011 on Global Voices

Back to Contents

2011 has been an extraordinary year for online citizen media content. Global Voices has been there as revolutions happened, dictatorships fell, and network effects rippled through the cities and neighborhoods of our contributors reporting from around the world.

What we do: Global Voices is a volunteer community of over 500 writers, translators, and digital media activists who bring you underreported stories and conversations from around the world.

Watch our new video highlighting images and quotations from some of our supporters:

Global Voices is at the centre of a truly global conversation, and your support helps keep us there. Thank you!
