Session Type(s): Panel
In the 2020 Democratic primary, the pool of presidential candidates went from being one of the most diverse slates in history to a slate with no persons of color on the debate stage. Communities of color must take this experience as an opportunity to have candid conversations about these challenges, and to propose solutions for the next generation of presidential candidates of color. If we are truly going to elect governments that are reflective of our nation’s rich diversity, candidates of color must have the knowledge, tools and resources to overcome unique challenges and structural barriers. Join us for a real and raw conversation about overcoming the challenges of being a person of color running for President of the United States.
