We’re excited to announce that Global Voices’ Community Council has been formed!
The Council has been in the making for the past several months, and we are thrilled that 184 community members came forward to join. The Council membership has strong representation from all sectors of Global Voices, including volunteer authors and translators, regional editors, Lingua site managers, Rising Voices grantees, board members and contributors from our earliest days online.
We thank everyone who answered the call!
Consultation Schedule is ready too!

Thanks again to all who have joined, we look forward to this exciting new stage for Global Voices!
