PANEL DISCUSSION: How Age and Race Are Changing Politics

June 6, 2014

Two significant shifts in the American demographic landscape — the aging of the baby-boomer generation and the emergence of a “majority minority” population — will be discussed by a panel of experts on June 12 in Washington, DC.

The event will be held at the Center for American Progress and is being co-hosted by Caring Across Generations (CAG), Progress 2050, and the Democracy Alliance.

Panelists include:

  • Ted Strickland, Counselor, Center for American Progress
  • Ai-jen Poo, Co-Director, CAG
  • Kirk Noden, Executive Director, Ohio Organizing Collaborative
  • Jim Firman, President and CEO, National Council on Aging

The panelists will speak about how the growth in size of communities of color and the “silver tsunami” of elders will affect U.S. public policy in the decades to come.

Maya Harris, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, will moderate.

Attendees are required to RSVP.
