Intense debates over race, gender, and multiculturalism are central to American politics. Advocates on all sides of the political spectrum have asked corporations, educators, institutions, and lawmakers to intervene in culture war disputes, demanding that they reform or preserve their policies. But how do voters feel about such arguments? Can either political party fight a culture war in a way that broadens its coalition while satisfying the demands of its base?

On September 15, please join the Manhattan Institute at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. for a panel discussion featuring Manhattan Institute’s Charles Fain Lehman, Cato Institute’s Emily Ekins, and National Review’s Nate Hochman, as they examine the contours of America’s culture war and its impact on policymaking. Manhattan Institute Director of External Affairs, Jesse Arm, will deliver brief opening remarks before turning over the panel to The Spectator Editor-at-Large and Fox News contributor Ben Domenech to moderate the conversation. We welcome you to join us early for drinks, appetizers, and networking.
