Who We Are
I'm working up the photo templates... having to make some decisions on how to link it all together.
The name 'Documenting Democracy' is apropos. Democracy should be documented and archived - recorded locally, regionally, statewide, and nationally - encouraging civic involvement at all levels, a participatory democracy. Promoting communities and the activities of the civilians within them.
Those records can then be used by those involved, their friends and family, those considering being involved, reporters, and historians, etc. The contributions to this website will be from the citizens involved, giving their perspective on the activities from the engaged point of view of a participant. We will take democracy from the passive mode of spectator sport to being the civic privilege and celebration it is.
Each contribution will promote activities from that locality, prompting more awareness of those activities - leading to a momentum that will stimulate more activities by more citizens and the documentation of them by more contributors. An evolving fabric of record documenting and promoting the evolving civic activities of our communities.
Each individual and each community is able to weave that fabric of civic involvement, document their activities, then use their document when looking back at their event. Engaged people making a difference, then being able to point out their role in that initiative from a historical record.
The site is born. Lots of work ahead of us...
