  • First of all, if you want to bring about a change, VOTE!
  • If you want to change the laws, ask your elected representative to represent your opinion in the parliament.
  • If you think there are more like you who want the same changes, gather them and ask them to talk to their elected representatives. If there are enough representatives voting for the change, the change will happen. That\’s how legislatures work.
  • If you do not like your representative, or if he/she does not agree with you, vote him out in the next elections and vote in someone who agrees with you.
  • If you do not find a candidate who agrees with you, then stand for elections yourself and persuade your constituency to support your opinion and vote you to the legislature.
  • If you do not want to vote and do not want to stand for elections yourself, approach the courts for redressal from unjust laws and illegal acts.
  • If you do not want to do that either, then you can’t do much in a democracy. You can try other forms of government.
