Message Vision. Not Division

Break the Dog Whistle code that conservatives use to hold political power and control your vote. Strategic racism is a real thing - conservative politicians use strategic racism to promote racial conflict, to divide and distract us. Why? This is a strategy to seize and hold political power.

This 4-part discussion series, featuring brief videos from Ian Haney-Lopez’s Race-Class Academy, brings the concepts of Dog Whistle politics and strategic racism to life. Together, we will transform these concepts from an academic idea to a conversation at kitchen tables across Michigan and build a Liberal Political Strategy.

  • Part 1 – Decoding Conservative Dog Whistles: identify politically racist codes intended to divide us and build conservative political power.
  • Part 2 – Responding to Dog Whistles: learning what works and what falls short, examining the impact of certain trigger words.
  • Part 3 – How Race-Class Works: discovering the Race-Class Liberal Political Strategy.
  • Part 4 – A New Vision for America: now is the time for black, brown, and white people to join together to build a multi-racial supermajority of voters.
