Democracy Talks is a set of practical tools and resources to help make democracy more inclusive. It provides activities that are now part of existing community programs. Democracy Talks is for any local or national group that would like to use a non-partisan approach to empower its members and create a culture where people are involved in moving democracy forward. It can be especially useful for groups that work with marginalized people who face economic or social barriers to inclusion, or with newcomers who want to learn about how Canadian politics works and how to get involved.
