DIVE IN: This Is What Democracy Looks Like

At a time when we are more connected than ever before, we have become disconnected. As a result, democracy is drowning. This multimedia project, which incorporates animation, mobile photography and video documentation, was produced by students in Dr. Caroline Kaltefleiter's COM 350 New Communication Media class at the State University of New York at Cortland.

Democracy doesn't happen on a screen. It happens when you make the choice to stand up and get involved. As students we have done just that. Our project calls for intergenerational outreach, both young and old, from all places of life coming together to accomplish good and breaking the divide of social equality. This is the essence of democracy; getting involved, getting people offline and into the community. This is our call to action.
