  • The United States is home to 40 million Black Americans, but too often these communities are lumped together into a monolithic category of “Black” or the even vaguer “people of color” in public opinion research. This misses Black Americans’ diversity of identities, experiences, and priorities. That is why Third Way and the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies launched a multi-round research initiative to understand similarities as well as differences among Black Americans as we head into a major crossroads for our country in 2020.

    Join Third Way and the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies for a panel discussion moderated by Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons to explore these findings. Speakers include:

    • Jessica Fulton, Vice President, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
    • Margie Omero, Principal, GBAO Strategies
    • Ted Johnson, Senior Fellow, Brennan Center for Justice
    • Akunna Cook, Principal, Drake Road Strategies and Senior Fellow, Third Way

    Breakfast will be provided. RSVP today to save your seat!
