Join the NWP for a panel discussion on how women candidates, voters, and office holders are changing, challenging, and disrupting American politics in 2018. We’ll discuss the ways in which women, and particularly women of color, are demanding a seat at the table, the nationwide impact of a more diverse electorate on midterm elections, and how women’s increased visibility in political life is changing America.
