A common voice

Thomas Baldwin meets Sara Speicher and learns about the work of the World Association for Christian Communication.

WE live in a world which is more connected than ever before. The rise of the internet over the last 25 years has brought more information to more people’s i ngertips than at any point in human history. In theory, anyone with the most basic equipment can make their voice heard.

But this great democratisation of information has come with a dark side, giving a platform to hate speech, conspiracy and ‘fake news’ that was previously coni ned to the margins. The migration of readers and advertising revenues to the internet has left traditional media outlets struggling to survive, and many of them have followed the path of increasing division and polarisation. Women and minority voices still face under-representation, bullying and threats on social media.

The World Association for Christian Communication has its roots in post-World War Two organisations of Christian media professionals. Today it campaigns on ensuring that everyone has access to all forms of communication, and on making sure that all voices are properly represented.
