Inspire Artistic Expression, Encourage Critical Thinking and Fundraise – Social engagement with #wddmty

BOSTON, March 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation (the Center) today launched the “What does democracy mean to you?” project for adults and youth. The project has three goals: inspire artistic expression, encourage critical thinking about democracy and fundraise for the Center.

The project addresses important questions by asking youth of all  ages  (with parental permission) and adults to depict their meaning of democracy using visual art and the written word.

  • What does democracy mean to us individually and collectively?
  • What are threats to democracy?
  • What decisions do we make to protect democracy, the U.S. Constitution, and the important work of the Center and similar organizations?

“Democracy and inclusion are at the heart of our shared vision. We see threats to democracy identified, in part, by suppression of voices, votes and representation. We must take action. Our action includes this project and other events that center dialogue on democracy.” –Paul S. Bracy, Founder & President

Take action to submit your entry and raise your voice. All approved submissions will be listed on the Center’s Threadless store and made available for public viewing and purchase. Profits from sales of the “What does democracy mean to you?” collection will go to the Center. Submissions are due May 1, 2024 at 5 pm EDT (UTC-4) through the Center’s website.

“This is a dialogue and a statement through visual and written art on the meaning of democracy. We are encouraging critical thinking and conversation by posing a question about a topic many Americans take for granted. By submitting your art, you are also helping the Center with visibility and fundraising.” –Randee Wilding, Chief Operating Officer

Project Guidelines, Rules and Agreement are available on our website. We encourage you to share the “What does democracy mean to you?” project #wddmty.

Adult participants are encouraged to continue learning through the Center’s Eradicating Racism: A Path Forward learning series, Finding Your Voice Program, Reading for Understanding and Let’s Talk Series: The White Power Movement: Its History, Threat and What You Can Do About It and future events.
