James recently spoke at Oxford and the European Parliament "Woke Conference".

Xi Van Fleet, a Loudoun County Virginia mother, starting pushing back against Critical Race Theory during School Board meetings two years ago and her testimony was impactful. An immigrant from China, Xi grew up during Mao’s Marxist Cultural Revolution, and she described Critical Race Theory as the indoctrination of children. What she was seeing in her county schools reminded her of what she witnessed growing up in Mao’s China. Xi came to the United States in 1986, when she was 26. She is actively sounding the alarm on the parallels of China under Mao and and what she sees happening now in her adopted country of America.

This dynamic trio of speakers with vastly different backgrounds will answer the following questions:

What is "woke" ideology?

Is Marxism in America today?

Is it possible to navigate courageous conversations with our fellow Americans?

How can we as everyday citizens best defend American principles?
