Now, we ask you to continue the story and engage your students in expressing their voice through photos, captions, or videos. What is their life like living in a democracy? To help facilitate this, the Center, through the generous support of the Verizon Foundation, has developed lesson plans and classroom resources. We understand that connecting with a school in another country may not be possible and hope that this site facilitates the dialog for your students. Encouraging your students to find their voice by any means of expression is essential for any democracy to thrive.
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” – Thomas Jefferson
