    The Democracy Dialogue website provides democracy education in five languages, aimed primarily at a youthful audience. Its unique initial content is videos drawn from a 2012 conversation between two prominent peace activists: Mohamed ElBaradei and Rajmohan Gandhi. Illinois education professor Linda Herrera created the site after seeing that activists in the 2011 Egyptian revolution lacked the knowledge to go from social media and marketing to creating a sustained democratic movement.
