All democracies should be founded on the principles of equality, representation, and participation. In order for a democracy to function effectively, it is essential that all citizens have equal access to political processes and have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. We work to contribute to amplifying the voices of young people, women, minorities and people with disabilities within democratic processes.
