Description

Brookings Mountain Lecture

Brookings Mountain West presents “America’s New Demography: Rising Minorities, Aging Boomers, and Emerging Cultural Gaps,” a talk by William Frey, senior fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program.

There are major demographic changes occurring in the United States right now. As the number of whites is declining among children and in many communities, we are seeing growth in other racial groups, particularly the Hispanic population. In fact, estimates are that by 2043 the United States will be “majority-minority." The Brookings Institution’s William Frey will discuss how these population shifts will impact different different parts of the country, their politics, and related policies. He will explore how the changes will continue to affect Americans for decades to come.
