Our Democracy

To me, democracy means that everyone is equal and has the same amount of power. In this post, I showed how my picture represents democracy.

By Julian Goodman from Eureka High School in California

In this photo, there is a group of people discussing an important after of what they are going to be for Halloween. They are having an intense conversation and stating costumes that they think would be good. Each person has different thoughts and they have chosen the 3 best and will have a vote on them. Each person voted and they found out the winner. Everyone respected the vote and agreed to wear the costume.

This represents democracy in many ways. First, it shows a community of people working together to figure out a solution to a problem. Everyone held a vote just like in a real democracy and the majority one. Each person plays an equal role in the decision-making process. The most important thing in a democracy is the citizens and this is showing a group of citizens making a decision based on what they want.

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.
