Our Voice is the voice of refugees in Freiburg and its surroundings on Radio Dreyeckland, aiming at showing that refugees are more than "just" refugees. Stories of those people who had to flee and now live in Germany are told to the audience, together with their problems and successes. Current socio-political developments about flight, asylum, migration in Freiburg and in the region are also addressed.
The editorial office is open for further refugees even without journalistic previous knowledge – “so that the invisible become audible”!
