On Wednesday, September 7, Sightline Institute is partnering with the Communications Hub at Fuse WA, Latina Creative Agency, and Washington CAN! to present a follow-up to our previous ethnic media event this past February.
This upcoming event will focus on how advocates, nonprofits, elected officials, and more, can effectively engage with the “Rising American Electorate,” the new American majority that includes people of color, women, LGBTQ communities, and young voters. The “Rising American Electorate” will make up the majority of voters for the first time in the upcoming November elections. As Steve Phillips writes in this year’s bestseller, Brown is the New White, America is experiencing a “demographic revolution” that will shift how interest groups and government bodies make decisions.
