Professor La Raja writes an essay in "The Conversation" about the Democratic Party

Raymond J. La Raja writes an essay in The Conversation about the Democratic Party and how its pluralism is both a strength and a weakness. He says a big challenge for the party is to attract more white voters while maintaining a commitment to civil rights and social change. At the same time, the party can’t be successful if people believe it is run by an economic and professional elite that ignores working people and their values. (The Conversation, 4/20/18)
