Taifa Smith Butler is the new president of Demos, a progressive think tank aimed at creating a just, inclusive multiracial democracy and economy for all. So what would that look like and what legislation is needed to help us get there in this time of rising income inequality and ongoing systemic racism. Demos is calling on Congress to pass the For the People Act saying this transformative voting rights bill, has racial justice at its core and would expand political power in Black and brown communities.
