Panel 2 – Challenges and Opportunities for Getting Out the Vote
does it mean to be a minority and what are the unique challenges that
they face? While there is great potential in the “minority” vote, there
are challenges and opportunities to mobilize these diverse and distinct communities. What has been successful and how can these communities be mobilized?
