Event Details

After Obama's decisive re-election in a weak economy, and more states moving forward with marijuana legalization and gay marriage, conservative leaders are left rethinking their positions and messaging strategies on key public policy issues.

Join us on Wednesday, December 5th for a New Media Lunch at the Cato Institute featuring a discussion of the drug war, immigration, and marriage equality, and how new media could help shape a libertarian shift in conservative thinking.

Cupcakes and Lunch from SunDeVich will be provided.
