Coalitions: The Key to Survival When You’re the Superminority in the State Capitol

Session Type(s): Panel

Starts: Thursday, Jul. 14 2:00 PM (Eastern)

Ends: Thursday, Jul. 14 3:15 PM (Eastern)

Join Progress Missouri and leaders from four coalition partners to discuss the importance of building strong coalitions and sticking together in the face of seemingly non-stop attacks. Attendees of this panel will come away with new strategies and ideas for their organizations to survive—and even thrive—when operating in states where they are part of a significantly out-numbered minority. This honest discussion will bring to light debates, strategies, disagreements and solutions necessary for carrying out the missions of progressive organizations in the very real world of red state politics.
