The Coalition Education Conference 2024

In the Fall 2024, minority conservatives will gather in Atlanta for a groundbreaking national coalition event. This powerful assembly aims to push back against the radical left's agenda, racial division, and victimhood rhetoric that threaten the fabric of our society.

For too long, the liberal left has portrayed ethnic minorities as "victims," claiming that only they can rescue us, steering our nation toward Marxism. Under the guise of "racial equity," they are dismantling our communities, undermining our country, and jeopardizing the future of our children.

This is a call to action for minority communities to unite and challenge the overreach of a tyrannical government. We must stand together, speak out, and reclaim our voice. The time to act is now.

Join the Conservative Minority Coalition in Atlanta for an empowering and transformative event. Together, we can defend our values, protect our freedoms, and shape a brighter future for all. Don't miss this pivotal moment in our nation's history!
