In a moment of roiling political divisions and high-stakes policy fights over racial, social and environmental justice and now a worldwide pandemic, women of color are emerging as leading voices and movement catalyzers.
They also representing a powerful — but often overlooked and underrepresented — voting bloc: One in five voters in presidential primaries are women of color, and they make up as much as 25 percent of the voters in key swing states such as of Texas, Florida and Arizona.
We hope you’ll join us for a candid conversation about how women of color are mobilizing action and redrawing the rules of engagement. We will hear from Aimee Allison, the founder and president of She the People, a national network elevating the political voice and power of women of color. Sandra Cordero, a political communications and engagement strategist and the former director of the Families Belong Together Coalition, and Rukia Lumumba, founder and executive director of the People’s Advocacy Institute.
