Democracy Conversation Project

This Guide is part of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities new program, the Democracy Conversation Project. Funded through the “Why it Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative, the Democracy Conversation Project (DCP) is a public humanities program designed to foster discussions among New Jersey communities about civic life and democracy in America.  It contains materials that cover the history of youth activism, current, and proposed activism for social justice, voter rights, immigration and youth participation in Democracy.

This is an ongoing project and new resources will be made available as the discussion continues. Look for new resource icon for 2022 additions. Recommendations and suggestions for resources can be sent to the Atlantic Cape Community College William Spangler Library at
