Democracy in Color made history at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. We kicked off the week by hosting a luncheon celebrating the political power of women of color, the first event of its kind in the history of the convention.
Titled, “Women of Color: Uniting the Party, Leading the Country,” the event drew more than 300 attendees and featured the rising stars of the Democratic party. Our panelists shared personal stories about their struggles and successes as women of color in politics.
Featuring: Stacey Abrams; House Minority Leader for the Georgia General Assembly, Nina Turner; former state Ohio state senator, Lucy Flores; former member of the Nevada State Assembly, Jane Kim; assembly member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, Alida Garcia; Executive Director of Inclusv and Rida Hamida, president of the Arab American Chamber of California.
