Underrepresented Groups

As information access spreads across the world, the divide between information “haves” and “have nots” is growing, with the “have nots” being left further and further behind. Discrimination against ethnic and religious minorities, LGBT populations, the disabled and people in extreme poverty keeps these populations from accessing the information they need. The spread of closed societies and violent extremism also brings digital and physical security threats against people for what they say and the information they consume. Internews works to prioritize the needs of the most information vulnerable to reduce the digital divide and support the inclusion of moderate voices in the countries where we work.

We stand in solidarity with those demanding justice and an end to racism in the United States and around the world. Elevating the voices of those who have been suppressed or ignored is central to our mission.
