Happy New Year from Global Voices!

This year we've published 6,159 short and long posts in English by hundreds of volunteer authors that have been translated in more than 30 languages by hundreds of volunteer translators.

We've seen both successes and setbacks for online social movements, wars, injustice and tragedy – but also countless stories of human bravery and survival to give us high hopes for the future.

The world is talking. We thank you for listening!

Please consider making a donation to support our work for the next year.
