Brown is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority is a new book by Steve Phillips and a wake-up call to the Democratic Party and progressive movement, arguing that they will lose elections and the future of the country if they do not make people of color a greater priority in their campaign and policy agendas.

In his book, Phillips argues that despite the abundant evidence from President Obama’s victories proving that the U.S. population has fundamentally changed, many progressives and Democrats continue to waste millions of dollars chasing white swing voters. The explosive population growth of people of color in America over the past 50 years has laid the foundation for a new American majority consisting of progressive people of color—23 percent of all eligible voters—and progressive whites, constituting 28 percent of all eligible voters. Brown is the New White shows how these two groups make up 51 percent of all eligible voters in the United States, and this majority is growing larger every day.

Please join the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a discussion with Senior Fellow and civil rights lawyer Steve Phillips as he draws on his extensive political experience to explain exactly how people of color and progressive whites add up to a new majority while also exposing how far behind the curve Democrats are in investing in communities of color.
