CANCELED: The Power of Republican Policy

Crosscut Festival 2022
Fri May 6, 2022 | 3:00pm

This event has been canceled. The Republican Party took its lead from President Donald Trump and barely offered a platform for the 2020 elections. But behind the scenes, top conservative think tanks are building bold ideas that will be there when the right regains power.


Featuring: Allison Schrager, Robert Doar, Oren Cass
