Joined by Alejandra Gomez and Tomás Robles of Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), the panel draws upon their collective research and experience to discuss the characteristics of winning and losing campaigns, sharing how movements build power for change as well as where they often go wrong. Tova Wang, Democracy Fellow at the Ash Center, moderates the discussion.
