Unintended Consequences? China’s Communist Party’s Actions - A Policy and Activism Webinar

316 days until event begins

What you will learn

“Call it ‘Sinophrenia': the simultaneous belief that China is about to collapse and about to take over the world.” - Thomas Orlik, China: The Bubble That Never Pops

China's Communist Party (CCP) has long-term goals for the advancement of their country and policy. It seems that more than any other government the CCP is constantly in the news:
  • “Weather” Balloons
  • Spies in Congress member's household staff
  • Hunter Biden's contracts

  • Tik Tok
  • Purchasing American farms
  • Uighur Enslavement and Genocide

  • One-Child Policy
  • Threats against Taiwan
  • Landing strips in the South China Sea

Are all of these linked? What are the consequences of policies, incidents, and attacks?

Each of these actions has consequences. Join as the Leadership Institute hosts policy experts on the Chinese Communist Party for a discussion on (unintended) consequences of the CPP's policies since the Cultural Revolution. The event includes activism ideas to spur our officials to take CCP threats seriously and blunt their attacks on western culture and sovereignty.

Ideal attendees are leaders and activists concerned about the encroachments of the CCP.

Attendees will learn:
• The extent to CCP hostilities toward the west
• Understand the roots of the CCP
• Build a coalition
• Pressure legislative bodies

U.S. Representative (TX-02)

"The Leadership Institute made it possible for me to learn how to run a campaign, how to craft my message, how to speak effectively in public, and how to handle the media.

Above all, I learned how to win.

Today, I stand in a long line of conservative leaders who owe a debt of gratitude to Morton Blackwell and to the Leadership Institute.
