  • Ernest N. Morial Convention Center 900 Convention Center Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70130 United States (map)

Democrats have a tremendous opportunity to win big in 2018. But they will need to abandon the myth of the “white swing-voter” and build transformative campaigns capable of expanding the electorate and tapping the New American Majority: the multiracial, multicultural, and progressive coalition of voters consisting of people of color and progressive whites. This panel will discuss strategies for 2018 and feature candidates whose campaigns have demonstrated the power of mobilizing this majority and building a truly reflective democracy.

Panelists: Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, Annie Weinberg
