Our democracy

I wrote about how peoples houses and differences represent our democracy.

By Nelson B. from Eureka High School in California

Democracy means that everyone is represented in our country. Everybody's opinion matters the same amount and all opinions matter. Everyone has the same rights and everyone has the right to be educated. I think that all people should be treated equally in a democracy and everybody's free to do as they wish.

This photo shows how everyone is different in a democracy. Everyone has a different house in a different place. In a democracy everyone has the freedom to express their own opinion. This photo shows how everybody expresses themselves differently. Nobody is the exact same as anybody else.

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.
