Global Voices seeks to aggregate, curate, and amplify the global conversation online – shining light on places and people other media often ignore. We work to develop tools, institutions and relationships that will help all voices, everywhere, to be heard.

We track citizen media worldwide with a team of bloggers who are from the regions and countries whose citizen media they follow.
