ADVISORY: States of Change: How Demographic Change Is Transforming the Republican and Democratic Parties

Washington, D.C. — America is changing—becoming older, more educated, and more racially diverse. These demographics changes have had a profound impact on the Democratic and Republican parties and will continue to transform them going forward.

On Thursday, June 27, the Center for American Progress will join the Bipartisan Policy Center, the Brookings Institution, and the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, for a look at how demographic shifts are transforming the Republican and Democratic parties. On the cusp of the 2020 primary season, experts will explore how the demographic composition of the parties have changed, how they will continue to change, and how those changes will influence the parties’ internal politics and electoral strategies. New simulations chart the ever-changing electoral landscape for Republicans and Democrats and foreshadow what could happen in the 2020 primaries and general election.

Please note that this event will take place at the Bipartisan Policy Center.
