The PowerPAC+ National Conference - Race Will Win the Race: The Progressive Path to Victory will change your view on U.S. politics. Forget the term “minority.” Our analysis and experience shows that a multiracial block of voters is increasingly becoming the majority. That means people of color and progressive whites have the potential to change the game from the bottom up and the conference will show you how. The event kicks off Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 in Washington, D.C. at the National Press Club. Here are three reasons it's not to be missed:
1. Two Words: Cory Booker. Ever since he won his U.S. Senate seat and became the first African American ever elected to statewide office in New Jersey, Senator Cory Booker has been killing it in the Capitol. From economic equality to college affordability, Cory has championed social justice issues that have impacted everyone from young people to working families. PowerPAC+ was an early supporter of Cory. From emailing tens of thousands of progressives across the country urging them to support Cory to putting together the first public piece highlighting his record as Mayor, we’ve been excited about Cory’s leadership for years. We’re thrilled to have Senator Cory Booker as our Luncheon Special Guest Speaker at the conference.
2. The South and Southwest hold the keys to the future of American politics. During the panel, “Key to Victory: The South by Southwest Strategy,” experts and elected officials from California, Texas and Georgia explain how PowerPAC+’s strategies to communicate to the multiracial majority are already winning in the South and Southwest and can win in the rest of the country. As America’s demographics shift, it’s now more important than ever to lay the foundation for a lasting progressive majority for the entire country.
3. Last month, Politico covered the story announcing our audit of Democratic Party spending. For a party dependent on a coalition of Latinos, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, progressive Whites, African Americans and Native Americans, investing in political experts who know how to effectively communicate to communities of color is a meaningful change that will produce wins in 2014, 2016 and beyond. The 2014 Fannie Lou Hamer Report on Democratic Party spending will be revealed at the conference and the full report will be available at powerpacplus.org. It’s going to be big news, so tune in.
