320 East 43rd Street, New York, NY

As we move through this polarized election season, political organizations are spending millions of dollars chasing white swing voters—when in fact, it’s minority voters who increasingly make up the political majority and have the power to determine our next president. At the same time, politicos and pop stars alike—from the DREAMers and Kendrick Lamar to the Tea Party and Ted Nugent—are helping keep issues of race a central focus of the national conversation.

Join civil rights lawyer, political leader, and author Steve Phillips as he discusses the shifting demographic landscape and its underlying disconnects at the launch of his new book, Brown Is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority.

Speakers include:
  • Ian Haney López John H. Boalt Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley
  • Deepa Iyer Senior Fellow, Center for Social Inclusion
  • Tamar Jacoby President and CEO, Opportunity America
  • Van Jones President and Co-Founder, Dream Corps
