As long as memory lives

On Memorial Day, flags identify the fallen & veterans who served—symbol of gratitude & sacrifice for democracy. Across my community, flags fly year-round on homes, pick-ups, at the road’s edge. What other aspects of democracy is symbolized?

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
