Aisha Moodie-Mills leads a weekly Study Group entitled "The Rise of the New American Majority." Each week will feature provocative discussions on the political implications of America’s demographic shift, the role of racial/identity politics in campaigns, the power of diversity with regards to candidates, campaigns, and Congressional staff, the implications for political parties, the 2020 Presidential contest, and much more!
Aisha's first study group session, "The Demographic Revolution," will provide context and information about the study group and allow participants to get to know each other and Aisha.L-163 (Faculty Dining Room) America/New_York public
America’s demographics are shifting, and people of color will soon make up the majority of the population—and the electorate—for the first time in our nation’s history. Who are these voters and what do they value? What will it take for their political power to grow in proportion to their numbers? What is the future of “identity politics”? And will the demographic revolution ultimately usher in a New American Majority that reshapes our nation? This session will provide context for the study group and you’ll get to know Aisha and hear about her journey of living, loving, and laboring out loud that ultimately transformed her political career.
