Description

The Left has corrupted every institution of society and infected its poisonous ideology into almost every aspect of American life. Institutions like law enforcement, the education system, corporate media, finance, and medicine—previously thought to be largely free from politicization—have been polarized by leftist ideology.

Join us for an all-day program to hear from some of the most influential voices in each of these fields who are sounding the alarm and fighting back against the rot of ideological weaponization in important segments of American society.

Lunch will be available during this program. A reception will follow.
