Free Lecture / Thurs, Oct 13th, 6 pm-8 pm, MCC Lounge
Presidential elections have always been focal points in American democracy, when people come together to elect a new president. Yet, often, these elections work for certain groups of people more than others. Election 2016 is no different. How can ethno-racial communities and women’s groups organize to build power in the political process? This talk will discuss research and strategies around organizing for social change.
