A Look Back At CPAC 2016

Last year, Karin Agness, Founder and President of NeW, spoke on the main stage at CPAC as part of a panel titled, Campus Crackdown. Karin shared her perspective on the current political and cultural climate of today’s campuses and what NeW is doing to promote conservative principles. NeW also recruited members with a booth in the Exhibit Hall and hosted a networking and dessert party featuring Lisa Daftari, Editor-in-Chief of Foreign Desk News. She is a political analyst appearing regularly on Fox News, CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post, ABC, and NPR. You can read about it here. Students solicited professional development advice from Lisa and learned about the challenges women face around the world.
