Rising Voices, an outreach initiative of Global Voices, aims to help bring new voices from new communities and speaking new languages to the global conversation by providing resources and funding to local groups reaching out to underrepresented communities.
Founded in 2004 by a group of pioneering international bloggers, Global Voices aggregates, curates, and amplifies the global conversation online – shining light on places and people other media often ignore. However, over the years it became increasingly clear that certain regions, languages, and demographics were better represented in the online global conversation than others. Today, Rising Voices looks forward to expand the pool of Rising Voices authors.
With a focus on local educational work around digital media, the initiative is recruiting new volunteer authors to contribute to the blog.
- Experience in writing short articles, either online or in a local publication
- Knowledge of digital media activism and education, in your own region or further afield
