As America’s population continues to transform and become more diverse, the future of U.S. politics is bound to change along with it. Due to rapid Hispanic population growth in recent years, demographers predict that in 2042, the number of all U.S. minorities added together will be greater than that of whites. Steve Phillips, Co-Founder of, will discuss what these population changes will mean for American politics.

Steve Phillips is a national political leader, lawyer, and philanthropist. A native of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Phillips now splits his time between San Francisco and Washington, D.C. A pioneer in political innovation, he created the country’s first Super PAC in 2007, and he is the founder and chairman of PAC+, a national social justice political network that was the first national group to back Senator Cory Booker and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. He is on the Board of The Democracy Alliance, the country’s largest network of progressive major donors.
