Week 4 From Organized Minority to Political Majority The Power of Building Multi-Racial, Multi-Issue, and Multicultural Coalitions

What are the core elements that have led to the shifts in the current political landscape? How has the media and movement politics impacted the political landscape? Has it created more political unity and/or has it led to more fractured groups within the two-party system? In this study session, we will explore and discuss the impact of the media on the current political climate. We will also explore the impact of organizing efforts outside of traditional party structures. What are the benefits and limitations of these models? We will examine the rise of organizing efforts on both the left and right and its impact of political discourse in America.
