The 2020s are poised to continue the past 15 years of significant advances based on the discovery and follow-up of nearby dwarf galaxies. Maximizing the scientific impact of dwarfs discovered in upcoming imaging surveys will require both major spectroscopic surveys on 6-10m telescopes and multiplexed spectroscopy with even larger apertures.
