Thank you to all who joined us as we launched #SpeakingofDemocracy. Democracy is a gift that requires sustained commitment. We must not be complacent observers of the changes around us. May the words on the walls inspire all who see them to think, reflect, question and act. pic.twitter.com/881d6BWZgq
