Democracy, anyone?

"We need campaigns that could flood our cities with democracy. They would present the history of democracy and allow for debates on the relationship between democracy and ethics, democracy and popular classes, democracy and economics. They would also focus on elections and the rights and obligations they imply."

Paulo Freire, from p. 91 of PEDAGOGY OF THE HEART (New York: Continuum, 1997)

How can we each bring this about in our neighborhoods?

What other ways are there of strengthening the democratic life of a people?
