EVENT ADVISORY: CAP, AEI, and Brookings Present Findings and Lead Discussions on Electoral and Policy Implications of Demographic Change Pulling from “States of Change: Demographics and Democracy” Project

States-of-Change-official-logo310

Washington, D.C. — In February 2015, The Center for American Progress, American Enterprise Institute, or AEI, and the Brookings Institution released a groundbreaking report in February 2015 that looks at U.S. demographic change nationally and in every state through 2060. The report’s authors have produced a series of simulations, based on their research, to examine how demographic shifts by race, age, and generation could affect election outcomes from 2016 to 2032. Can either party be confident of its long-term future in light of these demographic changes? What kinds of consequences could these changes have for the family, the workforce, and the social contract? How might policymakers respond?

Please join CAP, AEI, the Brookings Institution, and distinguished experts for wide-ranging bipartisan presentations on demographic change and its implications for America’s electoral future and key policy challenges.

Press are welcome to attend and must RSVP by contacting Tanya S. Arditi at or Heather Sims at .
