What is identity politics and why does diverse representation matter? We invite you to this timely event, featuring an esteemed panel of elected officials to discuss the importance of civic engagement and leadership, particularly within Black and Brown communities. Our panel will share issues that are important to communities of color, how they are addressing those issues for their constituents and what can be done at the state and national levels. Don't miss this opportunity to engage with and hear from legislators and discuss what advocacy looks like for people of color, particularly heading into the 2020 presidential election. This event is part of the UMDemocracy event series covering things to know before the November election.
