Up From Conservatism on Capitol Hill

Much of the Right still does not know where it is going or what it is fighting for. It has not looked honestly at the mistakes of its past; it does not know what to do about the future; and it cannot meet the threats that face it.

 But a new coalition continues to grow in strength and determination to disrupt our nation’s trajectory of decline and forced wokeness and set us back on the path to constitutional and civilizational health. What exactly would that require of the Right?

 Please join us for a discussion about the Right’s strategy going forward with Republican lawmakers and contributors to a new book, Up From Conservatism: Revitalizing the Right After a Generation of Decay.

This event is being held in-person and will not be livestreamed.
