The Global Women's Caucus, the Global Hispanic Caucus, and the Global Black Caucus have teamed up for a Women's History Month webinar
In this webinar, "Black/Brown Power, Whiteness and Women: The 2020 Election Challenge—Democrats, Be the Light! Save America! (…and the World!)” Ramona Houston, Ph.D., PMP, discusses how racial politics is at the root of Trumpism, which is precipitating the deterioration of American politics as well as America’s standing as a beacon of hope and leadership for the world. In this webinar, Dr. Houston briefly explores the historical development of racism and whiteness in America, arguing that Democrats must understand this history and its manifestations to effectively dismantle Trumpism as well as develop more powerful multi-racial/multi-cultural coalitions and a stronger Democratic Party. According to Dr. Houston, women play a vital role in this process.
Ultimately, Dr. Houston challenges Democrats to “Be the Light!” especially during the critical upcoming 2020 Elections—both locally and nationally. Whether Black, Brown, or White, progressive or conservative, rural or urban, domestic or abroad, Ramona contends that ALL Democrats individually and collectively must work strategically and aggressively to destroy Trumpism, secure the Presidency, and win local elections. By being the Light Democrats will usher in a greater and more perfect union, and most importantly, save America and the world!
This is an online event. You must RSVP to receive the connection information.
