Our Democracy

For our democracy project I talked about how my picture of me and my friend represent democracy.

By Nate H. from Eureka High School in California

Democracy means to me that we people are basically our own government because we elect the people that run our country. Also we have the right to kick out anyone we want in government by vote. And we have the ability to have them and make decisions together. Community and democracy are related because a democracy works better with a community. Also the community will make the decisions together for the whole community.

This picture represents democracy because in a democracy people can have different opinions but still be friends. There has to be agreements to get laws of what's getting implemented. It also shows democracy because two people from different places can be totally different but agree on a topic because they know it's what's best for everyone. And that people work together for the greater good. Also that people from different viewpoints respect other people's viewpoints.

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.
