Unequal participation - Unequal influence

The VPSJ workshops have been successful in encouraging people to use their VOTE as their VOICE

Between Elections 

Approximately 70% of people living in Ireland voted in the 2011 General Election. Many people believe that by casting their vote they have met their obligation to participate in the democratic system.   Voting at elections time is not enough. If we seek a more just and inclusive society we need to continue to engage with our electoral representatives. This engagement is essential to ensure that promises are honoured and our representatives held accountable!
