Election 2020: Women of Color on the Path to Victory

Aimee Allison

The outcome of the U.S. presidential election is still undetermined, but a clear shift to local and state elections reveals a strong and promising future for the progressive voice for justice — a future that is decided by women of color. Black Lives Matter activist Cori Bush made history with her congressional victory, while New Mexico became the first state to elect an all women of color delegation to the House. What do these campaign wins reveal about the changing face of America, and are women of color indeed the minority? Aimee Allison, founder and president of She the People, explains that this demographic is actually the majority in many places in America and discusses the role of this multi-racial coalition as it’s pitted against an equally vast base of voters swayed by white supremacist politics.
