Beyond Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future was a November 15, 2017 gathering of the Democracy Alliance.[3]

Opening remarks by National Education Association Executive Director and Democracy Alliance Board Chair John Stocks.

In every state where New American Majority-led organizations were fully funded to mobilize their communities In last year's election. these organizations overperformed. Yet the number of places where these organizations were funded to scale was minimal. If we know that New American Majority-led organizations can deliver votes, why are we not investing more in these organizations? This discussion will examine the reasons why New American Majority voters are staying home and the continued underinvestment in New American Majority led organizations

We'll first hear from SEIU International President Mary Kay Henry. New American Majority Fund Director Dave Montez will then lead a conversation with voices from the field including Ohio Student Association Executive Director Prentiss Haney, Virginia Black Leadership Organizing Collaborative Director, Marcia Price, Center for Community Change Action President and Center for Community Change Vice President Dorian Warren, and NextGen Climate Executive Vice President for Political Strategy Sky Gallegos exploring the barriers that exist. offer solutions worthy of investment, and address hard questions, including how we reconcile an approach that puts the New American Majority at the center of our progressive agenda that must unite the interests of many.[4]
