Brick by Brick


Every vote matters. That's what they say when referring to Democracy. Just like a building, Democracy is a structure. Rules and laws are the foundation, and every little brick that makes up the walls is a voter. We appoint the leaders, who stand like pillars to keep our Democracy functional, and we have the President, making the decisions like a door opens and closes. When we are all working together, we create a functioning society that is useful to all people involved, but if the foundation cracks, the walls fall down, or if the door stops functioning as we need it too, it gets replaced with a new door. Democracy is like a building.

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.
