The New Majority
2016 gave us a historically diverse Congress. 2044 will completely change the face of America. Are you ready?
The same election that landed Donald Trump in the White House also elected the most diverse Congress in history. This isn’t only a trend in Congress. Members of ethnic and racial minority groups will become the majority of Americans, or the “New Majority,” by 2044. At Ferox Strategies, we know that the demographic makeup of voters in the United States is rapidly changing and with it, so is the government and its policies. That’s why we value our close relationships with Members of Congress and allies that represent and prioritize diversity.
Our country saw a dramatic shift in representation in Congress in the 2016 elections, with a record 48 African Americans, 46 Hispanics, 18 Asian American and Pacific Islanders, and 2 Native Americans in both chambers. Not only is this a significant step for voters seeking elected officials who look and think like them, but also has great implications for how businesses and non-profits interact with the government and communities of color.
