International Day of Democracy
Sep 15 all-day

[1]International Day of Democracy is celebrated for and by people in
their ability to determine their own political, economic, social and
cultural systems and their full participation in all aspects of their
lives.

From the International Day of Democracy [2] page on the United
Nations Web site:

The UN General Assembly, in resolution A/62/7 (2007) encouraged
Governments to strengthen national programmes devoted to the promotion
and consolidation of democracy, and also decided that 15 September of
each year should be observed as the International Day of Democracy.

Fair Vote Canada and the Waterloo Region Chapter have held Democracy
Day and Democracy Week events since 2011.

@FairvoteWRC Info Table at the @OSWaterloo Open Streets Festival @ Waterloo Town Square
Sep 17 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Fair Vote Waterloo will have an information table at the Waterloo
Open Streets Festival [1]!

You can read our tabloid newspaper on electoral reform, sign a
petition asking the government to enact legislation to implement
electoral reform before Election Canada’s deadline, and send a
postcard to your local MP or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking them
to keep their promise on electoral reform. There may even be a few
‘Your Vote Should Count’ buttons left!

Got an hour or two? Come help staff the info table! There will be
plenty of experienced FairvoteWRC people to help you out if you’re new
to electoral reform.
