About this resource

On spring 2019, the Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest convened two public conversations on democratic participation.

Comprising historians, educators, activists and journalists, the conversations examined various forms of democratic participation, including activism, grassroots organizing, civic engagement, consumer spending, and gathering in public spaces.

In follow-up to the event, Villanova University’s Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest has created a free resource, “How Do We Participate in Democracy?” We encourage teachers, students, and voters to use this resource as a starting point for their own conversations about how citizens, non-citizens, and voters exercise political power inside democratic forms of government.
