Democray Shout Out

Democracy Shout Out is part of the Constitution Day events for 2010 at Texas Woman's University. Organized by the Department of History and Government, Democracy Shout Out is a chance to give students and other members of the community a safe forum to voice their views and opinions on a variety of issues that relate to the campus, the community and the country. You can participate online or on-campus by responding to issues that matter to you. These forums will be available Monday, September 13 through Wednesday, September 15.
