“Voices of Our World” is an award-winning, free, weekly 28-minute radio program focused on stories of human rights and social justice. The aim of the program is to highlight perspectives and issues often marginalized by mainstream media. In so doing, we confront issues such as human rights, peace, global economics, the environment and the plight of under-represented people around the world. Our audience is anyone and everyone with an open mind and interest in thoughtful, peaceful activism.
